On Sunday, May 20th, the Abbot Library’s monthly Poetry Salon with Claire Keyes will focus on Philip Levine's The Simple Truth, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1995. The poems of this current United States Poet Laureate have been described as "tender without being sentimental, calm but not lacking in passion."
Come explore these poems from 2:00 to 4:00 pm with Claire Keyes, Marblehead poet and Salem State Professor Emerita. Please bring The Simple Truth text with you.
People are invited to attend any or all of the Salons. Being able to enjoy and participate in one Salon does not require attendance at previous ones. If you simply want to try exploring poetry or you have a long-time appreciation of the art, all levels are welcome!
The Abbot Public Library is located at 235 Pleasant Street, Marblehead, MA 01945. For additional information, please call 781-631- 1481, or consult the Library’s website at www.abbotlibrary.org.
