Into the Owl-Dreamed Night by Charles F. Thielman
Raised in Charleston, SC, and Chicago, educated at red-bricked colleges and on Chicago's streets, Charles has worked as a youth counselor, truck driver, city bus driver and enthused bookstore clerk. Having learned much via his travels, Charles now calls Eugene, Oregon home.
Recently married on a Kauai beach, and a grandfather to five joys, Charles continues his inspired work as a poet and active shareholder in an independent bookstore. He also organizes readings at the store. On the boards of the county and state writers organizations, Charles is one in a circle of poets promoting the Poem-Caching/Poetry Box Project. The boxes are like curbside realtor's boxes, but with copies of poems inside for unsuspecting passersby. His poems have appeared in a myriad of national and international literary journals such as The Pedestal, The Oyez Review, Poetry Kanto and uphook press.
