Alice Fogel - NH Poet Laureate

Friday, February 26 at 4 pm

 

Join us for a spirited discussion of

 

The Power of Poetry in Our Lives

 

with New Hampshire Poet Laureate

 

Alice B. Fogel

 

 

The author of several books of poetry,

 

Alice's Strange Terrain is the seminal teacher's guide to getting students engaged in poetry,

 

and helping the "average Joe" learn how to relate to poetry.

 

It is an honor to have her in the bookstore, and please help us welcome her.

 

Alice B Fogel is NH’s poet laureate. Her newest poetry collection, Interval: Poems Based on Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature. Her third book, Be That Empty, was a national poetry bestseller, and she is also the author of the guide for readers and teachers, Strange Terrain, on how to appreciate poetry without necessarily “getting” it. She works one-on-one with students with learning disabilities at Landmark College in Putney, VT, and lives in Walpole.
