Supporting Indie Bookstores — and Local Businesses

Coming up! This Saturday, November 29, 2014, I’ll be “Bookseller (for a Day)” at Gibson’s Bookstore, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., in honor of Small Business Saturday. I’ll be featuring many of the books we’ve discussed in the Book Club for Poets. If you’re close to Concord, NH, swing by and see me!


Looking ahead to 2015

Thank you to everyone who came to our discussion of Sharon Olds’s Stag’s Leap!

Our next Book Club for Poets meeting will be on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, when we’ll be trying something new. This time, instead of reading and discussing a book, we’ll spend our time doing writing exercises based on some of the poets and poetic techniques we’ve been discussing. No prep work is needed: just bring one or two of the books you’ve especially enjoyed reading in the club — and plenty of paper and a pen. It should be fun!

In case in inclement weather, keep an eye on this blog. If New England College closes because of winter storms, we’ll also have to cancel our discussion in February. If the college is open but the weather is iffy, I’ll post any notices of cancellation on this blog.

The Book Club for Poets is a program of the New Hampshire Writers’ Project, and the group meets on the campus of New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire. The group is designed for practicing poets who want to look closely at the techniques of accomplished writers — and the group is also free and open to the public.
