“North Shore” a Collection of Poems by Robert Merrill is Now Available
Kate Merrill, a prolific mystery writer from Mooresville and former Davidson art gallery owner, has published a collection of poems written by her father. She named this collection, “North Shore.”
“While sheltering in place this summer, I needed a project to uplift my spirits…So in June 2020, in honor of what would have been my father’s 105th birthday, I assembled and independently released “North Shore,” the first collection of Dad’s poetry.
“Most of these 292 poems were previously published as individual works in major national magazines, but were never before assembled in one book. I believe that Herbert Merrill was to the Midwest what Robert Frost was to New England.”
Merrill continued, “During these chaotic times, may his words inspire you and bring you peace.”
