Alice B. Fogel ~ Newest Book of Poetry, with Deborah Brown
Celebrate Poetry Month!
Sunday, April 23 @ 2 pm
with NH State Poet Laureate Alice B. Fogel
introducing her latest book of poetry
A Doubtful House
which explores what happens to boundaries (psychological, emotional, physical, formal, even syntactical) when people live together for a long time in one house. The house itself has the main point of view, and addresses all its inhabitants as "you."
In addition to Strange Terrain (on how to appreciate poetry without necessarily "getting it"), Alice Fogel is the author of numerous poetry collections, including Interval: Poems Based on Bach's Goldberg Variations, which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature, and Be That Empty, a national poetry bestseller. She has co-edited Poet Showcase, An Anthology of New Hampshire Poets. An eight-time Pushcart nominee and a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, her poems appear in many journals and anthologies. She leads writing and reading workshops across the country, and works one-on-one with learning disabled students at Landmark College in Putney, Vermont.
She will be joined by veteran poet and professor, Deborah Brown,
author of the poetry collection
Walking the Dog's Shadow
She says she "loved teaching at UNH, but now loves retirement with its opportunity to spend more time writing and revising, as well as more time talking poetry with Alice and other poet/friends."
Please join us in The Gallery for a magical afternoon
of poetry and conversation with these two remarkable women reading from their works.
