Our poetry series: American Poets Part Two, concludes February 3rd with the poetry of Rita Dove, United States Poet Laureate from 1993 to 1995. Her book, "Thomas and Buelah: poems" was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1987. This informal discussion includes biographical information, readings of selected poems, and interpretation of themes, style, and criticism. Poetry from her book "Selected Poems," (Vintage Books 1993) will be featured. This program is part of the Literature for a Lifetime Series and is sponsored in part by the Connecticut Humanities Council. The discussion will be led by freelance writer, Mr. David Garnes. Stop by the library's Information Desk to pick up a copy of Rita Dove's book and a list of poems selected for discussion.
