Maben poet receives grant to promote book

Jessica Lindsey

Linda Kay Chandler is a poet from Maben and is a Mississippi State University alumnus. Her first book of poems is available for purchase and can be found under the title “Linda Kay’s Book of Poetry.”

Chandler’s book was published by Haley Book Publishing and was scheduled to come out a year ago. However, due to the pandemic, she has been forced to push her release date back more than a year, and she has had to cancel or postpone a lot of book signings and in-person promotions for her book because of the release date being changed. It is set to come out in April 2021.
