Poetry reading postponed
Hope — Due to the winter storm, Maine poet Russell Buker's reading from his five new books of poetry, originally scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. at Hope Library, has been postponed to Thursday, March 7, at 7 p.m. He also will lead a discussion about the advantages and drawbacks of self publishing, based on his own experience.
A former high school English teacher, Buker has released a dozen collections of poetry and had numerous poems accepted in publications in the United States and in Canada, including The Antigonish Review, “The Cape Breton Collection,” Goose River Anthology, the Portland Press’ poetry section and more.
Most of the poems in his 2012 collections “Final Mask,” “Deposition LXXII,” “Markings,” “So As It Semed Me” and “Mutato Nomine” were written last year.
“I have always conducted my life as though I was a writer,” he said.
The Hope Library is located in the Hope Town Office, 441 Camden Road at the conjunction of routes 105 and 235. The presentation is free. For more information, call 975-2750.
