The Robert Frost Farm’s Hyla Brook Reading Series features award-winning poet Rachel Hadas, along with Hyla Brook Poet Ellie O’Leary, on Thursday, July 11, 6:30-8:30pm.
Hadas is the author of many books of poetry, essays, and translations. Her most recent collection is Poems for Camilla, published in 2018; in the same year her verse translations of Euripides' two Iphigenia plays were published. The recipient of awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry and the O.B. Harrison Prize from the Folger Shakespeare Library, Hadas is Board of Governors Professor of English at Rutgers-Newark, where she has taught for many years.
Also appearing is Hyla Brook Poet Ellie O’Leary. O’Leary often writes about growing up in the village of Freedom, Maine. She hosted Writers Forum on WERU-FM, won the Martin Dibner Memorial Fellowship in poetry, and taught writing at the Pyramid Life Center in the Adirondacks and at Belfast (Maine) Senior College. She has an MFA from the Stonecoast program. Her memoir Up Home Again and her poetry manuscript Breathe Here are forthcoming with North Country Press.
Through September, the Hyla Brook Poets’ monthly writing workshop meets on the third Saturday of the month at 10am at its summer home at the Frost Farm, before moving to the Derry Public Library.
