NH's Poet Laureate, Alice B. Fogel will read and discuss some of her poems, explain her approach to putting readers more at ease with poetry, and share her plans for her Poet Laureate tenure. Alice Fogel's third book of poems, Be That Empty, was a national bestseller, and she is also the author of Strange Terrain, on how to become comfortable with poetry without even "getting" it. A recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and other awards, her poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Best American Poetry, and she has led workshops and programs around the state and elsewhere. She is currently the Poet Laureate of NH, and hopes to connect more NH poets to more NH readers. Check out some of Ms. Fogel's books at the library! Free and open to all.
