Join us for a night of poetry with two beloved New Hampshire poets, Mimi White and Marie Harris. They each have new collections of poetry. Mimi's latest is The Arc Remains and Marie's is Desire Lines.
Mimi White is the author of four collections of poetry including The Last Island, which won the Jane Kenyon Award for outstanding poetry, and The Singed Horizon, winner of the Philbrick Poetry Award selected by Robert Creeley. Her most recent book, The Arc Remains, from Deerbrook Editions, is due out this October. Mimi is a longtime NH seacoast resident and has taught or presented workshops throughout New England.
Marie Harris's fifth book of poetry is Desire Lines-- work written over more than a decade. The collection includes poems commissioned during her tenure as NH Poet Laureate as well as other public poems that have appeared on sculptures, in parks, on postcards and billboards, and even on Twitter.
Marie is also an anthologist who, with her co-editor Kathleen Aguero, edited one of the earliest multicultural anthologies of contemporary American poetry: AN EAR TO THE GROUND (Univ of Georgia Press). She has written three children's books: G is for GRANITE, A NH Alphabet Book; PRIMARY NUMBERS, A NH Number Book; and THE GIRL WHO HEARD COLORS a book about synesthesia. It was named Outstanding Work of Children's Literature by the NH Writers Project in 2016.
