Alice B. Fogel NH State Poet Laureate
2014 ~ 2019
presents Strange Terrain: How Not to "Get" Poetry and Let it Get You Instead "Poetry will give you endless ideas to think about...It will connect you to nature and civilization, other people near and far,
now or then, and to your own inner life."
Alice Fogel takes us through seven simple steps, and one hard one, toward understanding and appreciating more elements of poetry than we ever thought we might and in the end we'll find that we know them all along.
This workshop is a quick, self-help program for “getting” poems. Fogel will help us develop our own confident relationship with poetry’s shapes, words, images, sounds, emotions, mysteries, and more.
This is a New Hampshire Humanities Humanities-To-Go program
Open & Free to all
Join us at 5:30 for a Pot-Luck Supper preceding the Free Presentation

6:30 - 8:00 Haiku & You
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. In the eastern form it is generally written as one continuous line, 'cut' into two related thoughts or observations. Our western form consists of three simple lines. The first and last lines have five syllables with seven in the middle. The lines rarely rhyme and are usually written about things that are recognizable to the reader.
Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression. Join us for a gentle evening of haiku -
reading, discussing and creating.
