Little Terrarium, Poems by Hannah Fries

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017, 5:30 p.m.

New Hampshire native Hannah Fries returns to present her new volume of verse, Little Terrarium!

Hannah Fries’s poems are acutely alive to the physical world in all its varied, gorgeous, and vulnerable incarnations from rain to moon snail, moosewood to worm, fox to orchid. With rich imagery and fresh detail, Little Terrarium wakes us up to all the layers of “glimmer and decay.” ~ Ellen Bass
