Writing the Land: Poems from the Special Places of the Upper Valley
As the weather changes and the days grow short cuddle up in a cozy sweater and a warm drink and indulge in this lunch time poetry reading. We will be hosting three poets who wrote poems about three different natural areas in the Upper Valley:
Christopher Locke: True’s Ledges
Jessica Purdy: The Dismal
Hope Jordan: Up on the Hill
Join us to listen to the poets read their work and engage in a Q & A afterward.
In collaboration with Writing the Land, a product of NatureCulture. Writing the Land is an attempt to honor nature and our relationship with it in a way that is as equitable and transparent as it is deep and entangled. As poets and advocates, we declare our intention that the scope of this project be as inclusive—to humans and places—as we hope the mantle of protection that land trusts offer can be. Our work in writing the land will never be complete but rather gains strength, depth, beauty, and energy from a multitude of voices. More info about the Writing the Land project can be found here.
