Carmichael's welcomes beloved Kentucky writer George Ella Lyon for a reading from her latest collection of poetry "Many-Storied House."

While teaching aspiring writers, Lyon asked her students to write a poem based on memories rooted in a house where they had lived.

Working on the assignment herself, Lyon began a personal journey, writing many poems for each room. In this intimate book, she strives to answer lingering questions about herself and her family: "Here I stand, at the beginning," she writes in the opening lines of the volume, "with more questions than answers."
