Plymouth, N.H. — Poets Donald Hall, Charles Simic and Cynthia Huntington make their annual visit to Plymouth State University Sunday, September 19, to discuss works by poets in the 2004-2005 Eagle Pond Authors’ Series at the University. They will read and discuss “Late Morning” by Marie Howe, “Infidelity” by Jack Gilbert and “A Display of Mackerel” by Mark Doty beginning at 3 p.m.
Hall is the author of numerous collections of poetry and prose, and former New Hampshire poet laureate. His memoir The Best Day The Worst Day will be published in the spring. Simic is the 1990 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry and a finalist for the National Book Award. Huntington is New Hampshire’s current poet laureate, author of four books, and director of creative writing at Dartmouth College.
The Eagle Pond Authors’ Series is named in honor of Hall, who lives at Eagle Pond Farm in Wilmot, N.H., a family homestead which has inspired much of this writing. This is the seventh season for the series.
