Poetry reading at library March 4th

From Melanie Hubbard:
As Literature chair for the South Shore Arts Council, I have arranged a Poetry Reading featuring Peter Meinke next Thursday evening at the library. He's old, he's wise, he's funny, and I think you'll really appreciate his poetry, which is both accessible and accomplished. I hope you can make it! Spread the word to anybody you think might be interested. It's free, and refreshments will be served!!

Distinguished poet Peter Meinke will be reading from his works at the South Shore Library on March 4th at 7:15 in conjunction with the library’s opening and reception for artists Gunnie Nilsson Price and Nancy Cooper from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Info: 672-1155

Peter Meinke has published 15 books of poems, 7 in the prestigious Pitt Poetry Series, the most recent being The Contracted World (2006). His poetry has received two NEA Fellowships and three prizes from the Poetry Society of America. His book of short stories, The Piano Tuner, won the 1986 Flannery O’Connor Award. He directed the Writing Workshop at Eckerd College for many years. The University of Tampa Press has just re-published Lines from Neuch√Ętel with original illustrations by his wife, Jeanne.
