SC's poet laureate publishes new volume

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's poet laureate is publishing a new volume of poems.

A launch party for Marjory Wentworth's book, "The Endless Repetition of an Ordinary Miracle," is set for Saturday at Blue Bicycle Books in Charleston.

Wentworth has been the state's poet laureate since 2003.

Besides publishing widely in journals, she has published other volumes of poetry including "Noticing Eden" and "Despite Gravity."

She has also published a children's book, "Shackles," telling of what happens when two children find old slave shackles on Sullivans Island.
