Reading and Book Party

Journey into Space. Ina Anderson

 

Saturday, May 20, 2017, 3 p.m.

120 Pulpit Hill Road, North Amherst

(Pioneer Valley Cohousing Common House)

 

From her origins in England through a life well lived in Vermont, poet Ina Anderson will transport her audience through universal experiences of childhood, love and loss in a reading from her new collection Journey into Space. Maine poet laureate Baron Wormser has written of Journey into Space, “Ina Anderson’s poems show us scenes from a fully lived and deeply appreciated life. The poems hail from that legendary land called The Past, each poem brimming with convincing details and nuances of feeling. Her British origins feel at once far away and familiar, for the terrain her poems traverse is thoroughly human—the stuff of tales told by the eternal hearth.”

 

The reading is free and open to the public.

Please join us!!
