Granite State Native and Maine Poet Laureate Wesley McNair publishes "superb memoir" about how he became a poet. Join us for an evening author talk and reading with this New Hampshire favorite.
Beginning in poverty and a broken home, Wesley McNair went on, through family hardships and setbacks, to become what poet Philip Levine has called “one of the great storytellers of contemporary poetry.” This memoir tells how he developed into a poet against the odds, incorporating his struggles into his art.

Bookstore events for the rest of September
