Save the Date: Rachel Hadas in Vermont, March 31, Award Party!
The St. Johnsbury Athenaeum will award its medallion in the arts to poet Rachel Hadas on March 31, at the Athenaeum (1171 Main Street, St. Johnsbury, Vermont). Hadas, the author of a dozen books of poetry, essays, and translations, also teaches at Rutgers Newark. Count on a gala event; yours truly is on the Athenaeum committee doing the party planning. Between her incisive thinking, her fierce classicist background, and her willingness to put her emotions at the core of many of her poems, Hadas offers strong and accessible work. Her newest collection, The River of Forgetfulness, is available POD from David Robert Books, http://www.davidrobertbooks.com/hadas.html
