New Hampshire Humanities presents: Keene "New Voices"

New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alice Fogel and Wilton poet Patrice Pinette introduce and read with new immigrant writers in “Keene: New Voices” at the Keene Public Library. Together they will share their worlds in poetry with music by Sarah Merrigan playing the Celtic harp. New Hampshire Humanities’ “New Voices” project is an extension of the Connections reading and book discussion program, bringing an opportunity to students learning English to develop their own stories. Through “New Voices,” professional writers meet immigrant writers, learn from each other, edit words for power and clarity, and explore ways that bilingual writers bring new creativity to expression in English. In “Keene: New Voices,” Fogel and Pinette have collaborated with two students in Julie Moulton’s ESL class at Keene Community Education, Vidhya Planimuthu, Kalaivani Rajendra as well as special guests from the class. Please come for readings, refreshments, and conversation. Free and open to the public! For information, contact Terry Farish, tfarish@nhhumanities.org.
