Poetry in New Hampshire: A Week of Readings

(Poet Jeff Friedman)

New England College in Henniker, NH, offers an all-poetry low-residency master's of fine arts program with, as the college says, "internationally acclaimed faculty." And that's great news for the rest of the New England community, with access to these top poets on most evenings of the session (June 24 to July 1) in a free public event.

Each evening reading starts at 7:30 p.m. and is held in the Simon Center Great Room -- which is in the white farmhouse-style building at the entrance to the campus.

The Sunday June 24 reading opens with Lebanon, NH, poet Jeff Friedman -- recently profiled by NH Poet Laureate Patricia Faragnoli on a state site -- and his 2007 collection should be on hand for purchase. Here's the list:

Sunday June 24: Jeff Friedman, Carol Frost, Ross Gay
Monday June 25: Judith Hall, Ruth Ellen Kocher, Alicia Ostriker
Tuesday June 26: Anne Marie Macari, Judith Vollmer, Michael Waters
Thursday June 28: Martín Espada
Friday June 29: Maxine Kumin, Gerald Stern
Sunday July 1: Joan Larkin, Paula McLain, Malena Morling
