Event Powow River Poets Reading Series: A Celebration of Edna St. Vincent Millay

November 9, 2019 | 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Join us for an afternoon of poetry with the Powow River Poets! Readings are free, accessible, and open to the public. This reading is a special celebration of Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Catherine Chandler, featured poet, will read several Millay poems and her own award winning parody of Millay’s “Renascence." Powow River Poets will read favorite poems of Millay, in solo voice and in polyphony. Join us to hear the many voices of this leading American Poet of the 20th Century, who was born in Camden Maine, and lived on Ring Island and Lime Street in Newburyport as a child.

Catherine Chandler, author of five poetry books, is known as an unapologetic formalist poet. Her first full-length collection, Lines of Flight, was shortlisted for the Poets' Prize, and she has also won the Howard Nemerov and the Richard Wilbur Awards. Her latest collection, Pointing Home, was published this past April. Catherine and her husband live in Saint-Lazare, Quebec and spend the winter months in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

The Powow River Poets, based in Newburyport, Massachusetts, are active promoters of poetry in New England.
