Quarterly meeting of the Poetry Society of NH--free and open to the public
After a private board meeting, a public poetry event centered on The Widow's Handbook
begins at 11 AM and goes until 1 PM.
The Widows’ Handbook
is the first anthology of poems by contemporary widows, many of whom
have written their way out of solitude and despair, distilling their
strongest feelings into poetry or memoir. This stirring collection
celebrates the strategies widows learn and the resources they muster to
deal with people, living space, possessions, social life, and especially
themselves, once shock has turned to the realization that nothing will
ever be the same. As Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says in
her foreword, losing one's partner is a loss like no other.
