Meet the Poet
Emily Burns is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and author of several very different genres. "The Children's Civil War Alphabet Book" is a children's picture book that gives a glimpse into life during the civil war. Next came an anthology of poetry, "Dalliance," published by Old Seventy Creek Press as part of their 2010 poetry series. Most recently, a 19th century cookbook titled, "Our Receipts". Emily and her family are involved in living history and historic preservation. When she isn't sewing or studying 19th century material culture, you might find her at one of her favorite local historic sites. Read.
