Poetry Society of NH: Rodger Martin & Jeffrey Zygmont

Wednesday, June 19th, 2019, 5:30 p.m.

The Poetry Society of New Hampshire meets at Gibson's Bookstore ten months out of the year! This month the headliners are Rodger Martin and Jeffrey Zygmont. Come with your verse appreciating ears on!

Rodger Martin’s new book of poems in two languages: For All The Tea in Zhōngguó was  released in 2019.  His  third poetry volume, The Battlefield Guide , (Hobblebush) uses locations on battlefields of the Civil War to reflect upon America today. Small Press Review selected The Blue Moon Series (Hobblebush), as its bi-monthly pick of the year.  A translation of his work, On The Monadnock, appeared in China in 2006.   Martin has received an Appalachia poetry award, a N.H. State Council on the Arts Fiction Fellowship, a series of Bruce Kellner/Monadnock Fellowships, and fellowships from The National Endowment for the Humanities.  In 2012 he was chosen as poet to represent the U.S. at Hangzhou, China’s international cultural festival. 

Jeffrey Zygmont is a professional writer and small publisher. His poetry books celebrating the White Mountains reach general readers at stores throughout New Hampshire. A full-time New Hampshire resident for more than three decades, Jeffrey speaks regularly about poetry and artistic inspiration at venues across New England.
