Thaddeus Honeycutt Presents Reading at Pyramid Art, Books and Custom Framing Today
Ten years after his passing, Thaddeus Honeycutt's daughter returns to Little Rock with the poet's first book, Coming Outa Darkness for a reading today, June 27, 2014 at 6:00 pm at Pyramid Art, Books and Custom Framing, 1001 Wright Ave.
"He was the quintessential poet, peacemaker, agitator and philosopher - eccentric and self-made," says daughter and the book's publisher Gaea Honeycutt.
Indeed Mr. Honeycutt was once profiled in Arkansas Characters, along with the likes of then Governor Bill Clinton and farmer Vernon Hildebrand. He was known by many in Little Rock as a spiritual man who built his own philosophy about God, while at the same time advocating for civil rights even going so far as running a symbolic campaign for Governor.
This month, his daughter hopes to share a bit of Mr. Honeycutt's infamous wit and introspection. "Back in the early 1970s he was talking about some of the hot button issues of our day. We're always talking about healthcare and quality of life, the news turned entertainment media, and the abuse of power that sometimes seems commonplace among our leaders."
Ms. Honeycutt will be signing copies of Coming Outa Darkness and reading passages at the talk just across the street from her father's alma mater, Dunbar Junior and Senior High School (now magnet middle school). Coming Outa Darkness is published by Weirding Word Publishing House, an independent, boutique publishing house providing a range of creative, intellectual, editorial, design and publishing services.

Thaddeus Honeycutt was a poet, peacemaker, agitator and philosopher. Once profiled in Arkansas Characters, he was known by many in Little Rock as a spiritual man who built his own philosophy about God (I AM), while at the same time advocating for civil rights even going so far as running for governor. Remembered for his eccentric approach to life, he walked to the beat of a different drum.
