Calendar Alert: Poetry Readings at Dartmouth

We've had another foot of snow this week up in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont -- so the photo here, taken at Dartmouth, is actually a pretty good approximation to the view around here. Frankly, I've shoveled enough of the white stuff for now (although we have more arriving tomorrow, groan). And that's why it's definitely time to get indoors for some poetry.

April Ossmann's recent collection ANXIOUS MUSIC was reviewed here January 27, so it's great to know that this Maine poet (and publisher! - Alice James Books) is headed to Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, for a reading on February 21.

In fact, Dartmouth is hosting two rounds of poetry this month:

Saturday February 9, 2-4 p.m., poetry reading as part of Winter Carnival, with the first hour poets Jim Schley, Gary Lenhart, and yours truly, Beth Kanell, followed by open reading time for another hour.

Thursday February 21, 4 p.m., April Ossmann reading from her debut poetry collection Anxious Music (Four Way Books, 2007), and Peter Campion reading from his debut collection Other People (University of Chicago Press, 2005). (Snow date 2/28.)

Both events are in the Wren Room at Sanborn Hall, at the north side of the green.

For more information on the 2/21 event, call 603-646-2316 (Dartmouth College).
