THIRD SUNDAY IN OCTOBER DUE TO THE WARNER FALL FOLIAGE FESTIVAL
Please join us for a very special Poetry Workshop this month, as we are joined by
Former NH Poet Laureate
Celebrating and Discussing the Release of her latest book of poetry
Sunday October 20 @ 2 pm
DESIRE LINES is Marie Harris' fifth book of poetry—work written over more than a decade. The collection also includes poems commissioned during her tenure as NH Poet Laureate as well as other public poems that have appeared on sculptures, in parks, on postcards and billboards, and even on Twitter! She is an anthologist who, with her co-editor Kathleen Aguero, edited one of the earliest multicultural anthologies of contemporary American poetry: AN EAR TO THE GROUND (Univ of Georgia Press). She has written three children's books: G is for GRANITE, A NH Alphabet Book; PRIMARY NUMBERS, A NH Number Book; and THE GIRL WHO HEARD COLORS a book about synesthesia. It was named Outstanding Work of Children's Literature by the NH Writers Project in 2016. Marie's research on the alphabet book led her to discover Henniker native Amy Cheney Beach, America's first female composer, herself a synesthete, and she has created a performance in words and music based on the composer's life.
Marie will be joining our monthly Poetry Workshop, led by former UNH English professor
Deborah Brown, author of Walking the Dog’s Shadow
and the just released The Human Half.
Deborah will be offering a monthly Poetry Workshop
designed to combine lessons and exercises on aspects of craft (image, diction, metaphor) with a small amount of critique and in-group writing.
For the novice to the published.
Join at the beginning or when you can.
