Chera Hammons

While quarantine has seemingly slowed down many of our lives, one High Plains poet and author has been keeping very busy. Tonight at 7pm CT, Amarillo-based writer Chera Hammons launches her first novel, Monarchs of the Northeast Kingdom, with an online reading and discussion—and you’re invited.

Thanks to Eric Meljac of the High Plains Poetry Project and West Texas A&M University for stopping by High Plains Morning today to share the upcoming Spring/Summer 2020 readings will be held at the new Burrowing Owl Bookstore location in Amarillo (7406 SW 34th Avenue). Here’s a list of all forthcoming events. Mark you calendars! For our full interview, click the link below.


For someone with five horses, two dogs, three cats, a donkey, a rabbit, and a husband, Chera Hammons sure gets a lot of work done. She stopped by High Plains Morning, with Dr. Eric Meljac of the High Plains Poetry Project, to promote an upcoming reading with an impromptu literary throw down (ahem, a reading).
