Join the Poetry Society of New Hampshire for an afternoon of verse! Their headlining poets this month are Julia Lisella and Kathleen Aguero. An open mic follows their readings.

Julia Lisella’s most recent collection, Our Lively Kingdom (Bordighera Press, 2022), was named a finalist in the Lauria/Frasca poetry prize. Her poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Ploughshares, Nimrod, Paterson Literary Review, VIA, and Alaska Quarterly Review. She also writes literary criticism, mainly about women writers, is a professor of English at Regis College in Massachusetts, and co-curates the Italian American Writers Association Literary Readings in Boston.

In addition to After That (Tiger Bark Press), Kathleen Aguero’s poetry collections include Investigations: The Mystery of the Girl Sleuth (Cervena Barva Press), Daughter Of (Cedar Hill Books), The Real Weather (Hanging Loose), and Thirsty Day (Alice James Books). She has also co-edited three volumes of multi-cultural literature for the University of Georgia Press (A Gift of Tongues, An Ear to the Ground, and Daily Fare) and is consulting poetry editor of Solstice Literary Magazine. She is a winner of the 2012 Firman Houghton Award from the New England Poetry Club and a recipient of grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Elgin-Cox Foundation. She teaches the low-residency M.F.A. program in Creative Writing at Pine Manor College and in Changing Lives through Literature, an alternative sentencing program. She also teaches Creative Writing for Caregivers Workshops in community and institutional settings.
