Charles Simic, tonight! Merle Drown tomorrow! April 15th, 2015

Charles Simic
Wednesday, April 15, 7 PM
New Hampshire is home to many fine writers, poets, and artists, but none more gifted and influential than Charles Simic. 
A writer and poet of truly international stature, Simic is also an entertainer, writing as winningly on jazz, food, and sex as he does on history and culture.
We consider ourselves very lucky to host an event for him, and we hope that you'll all turn out to hear him read and speak.
Here's a review of his new work in the New York Times.
Merle Drown
Thursday, April 16, 7 PM
Merle Drown's novel Lighting the World is based on a true and tragic story that occurred here in Concord in 1985. Read about the novel here, and the events at Concord High School here.
Merle Drown has written stories, essays, plays, reviews, and two novels, Plowing Up a Snake and The Suburbs of Heaven. With John Cawelti he edited Meteor in the Madhouse, the posthumous novellas of Leon Forrest, published in 2001. The Suburbs of Heaven, chosen by Barnes and Noble for its Discover Great New Writers series, received rave reviews from the New York Times, Newsday and other media.
Merle has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the NH Arts Council. The father of three sons, he lives with his wife Teresa Ceballos in Concord, N.H. and Toronto. He teaches in Southern New Hampshire University’s M.F.A. program.
