Barn Owls: An Evening of Poetry

It is rumored that poet Robert Frost once slept at the Scriven Arts Colony, his wizened brow against the splintery floor of the barn. But the old curmudgeon is dead now, and it falls to his heirs to reinvent New England poetry. Come watch them in action as we deliver readings from Gilmanton summer resident Sharon Olson, author of the acclaimed collection, The Long Night of Flying, and Vermont poet William Stratton, a Pushcart Prize nominee whose muscular, plainspoken poems celebrate the natural world and the grit of hardworking country people. An additional poet, Katherine Ferrier, will bring her 1950 manual typewriter to craft spontaneous poems upon request. Ferrier is the impresario behind WREN, an art gallery and community hub in Bethlehem, NH.
