Houston County Alum Returns with Published Poetry
Houston County Alum Returns with Published Poetry

Jacob Watters, a 1998 graduate of Houston County High School, has published his first book of poetry, Curbside Assistance and the Benefit of Mistakes.  He is pictured with his book which features a former classmate from Perry, Fl., Carrie Parker, on the cover.  

His book is described online as:  “Written in simple, flowing language and often with rhyme and meter which readers may find more similar to the beat of modern rock or pop music than classic poetry, Curbside Assistance and the Benefit of Mistakes is a collection of poems written in homage of friends, family, nature, god, love, failure and success.”  “Having Never Said” memorializes Parker who died at age 20, a Houston County Board of Education news release says. 

After graduating from Houston County High School, Watters went to Valdosta State University and then to the Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

He is currently completing his residency training in family medicine at Florida Hospital East Orlando in Orlando, Fla. 

Watters has a book signing this Saturday, Jan. 29, 2011, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Gottwals Books on Russell Parkway in Warner Robins.  For more information, please contact Watters at 678-622-9119 or jwattersdo@gmail.com.
