Poetry at The Fells: Explore The Fells with New Hampshire Poets

Sunday, September 28, 2-4pm
(Rain date: Sunday, October 5)

Journey through the Fells’ beautiful, historic grounds and experience poetry like never before! Granite State poets from Hobblebush Books will read and discuss their work at various scenic spots around the Fells. Travel from one poet to the next for the entire experience, stop for selected readings to hear your favorite, or lounge at a special spot! Bring a blanket if you wish. Poets will be available between readings to speak one-on-one and will sign books throughout the event. (Bring your own copy or purchase one at the event.)

Participating poets include:

New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alice B. Fogel
Former New Hampshire Poet Laureate Patricia Fargnoli
James Fowler
Sidney Hall Jr.
Rodger Martin
J. Kates
Maudelle Driskell

Members free, nonmembers $10. No registration required.

We'll take the $10 admission fee off the retail price of any book you purchase at this event!
