Our book club meeting (the book is TransAtlantic, by Colum McCann) has been postponed until Monday, Sept. 15, at 7 PM.
Start: 7:00 pm
Wednesday February 20th, 2013, 7 p.m. The Poetry Society of New Hampshire meets at Gibson's Bookstore on the third Wednesday of every month. Our headliners this month are Dudley Laufman and Liz Jones. An open mic follows their readings (arrive early to ensure a spot on the sign-up sheet). All are welcome, newcomers are encouraged! Dudley Laufman was raised in the Boston area. He went to agricultural school but have spent most of my time as a musician. He lives with Jacqueline on the edge of the woods in Canterbury, NH, where they earn our money by playing fiddles for dancing. In 2009 Dudley was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship. He is a recipient of the New Hampshire GOVERNOR'S AWARD IN THE ARTS Lifetime Achievement Folk Heritage Award for 2001. He has been nominated for a Pushcart Award, and is the subject of a documentary film THE OTHER WAY BACK. Dudley has published five trade edition books of poems: AN ORCHARD & A GARDEN (William Bauhan Press 1974), MOUTH MUSIC (Wind in the Timothy Press 2001), THE STONEMAN (Shaker Village Inc. 2005), WALKING STICKS (2007), SHE PLUMB NED, SHE MORE’N PLUMB, (20ll).(Beech River Books), and the chapbooks: SMOKE SCREEN and BEHIND THE BEAT (Pudding House 2004, 2008), LEFT EYE (2012) Finishing Line Press, as well as numerous other pamphlets, chapbooks and broadsides.
