The recipient of the New England Poetry Club’s Golden Rose Award, Pulitzer Prize-winner and former US poet laureate Mark Strand, is in good company. Former winners include Robert Frost, Robert Lowell, Mary Oliver, and Czeslaw Milosz. Strand accepts the honor and gives a reading of his work, noted partly for its surreal imagery. An example from the 2006 collection, “Man and Camel’’: “On the eve of my fortieth birthday / I sat on the porch having a smoke / when out of the blue a man and a camel / happened by.’’ July 11, 4 p.m. Free. Longfellow National Historic Site, 105 Brattle St., Cambridge. Rain or shine. 617-876-4491, www.nps.gov/long
