Baron Wormser in Guilford

Baron Wormser, who directs the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and teaches at the Stonecoast MFA Program, read to a rapt audience at the Second Thursday Poetry Series reading on October 9th at the Women and Family Life Center in Guilford. He shared his unique insights into the choice of a poetic life, enriched by his experiences living off the land. He shared an excerpt from his memoir The Road Washes Out in Spring, poems from his most recent work Scattered Chapters: new and selected poems, and a short piece from The Poetry Life: Ten Stories. There was a great crowd on hand and the books were selling briskly. The reading was held in the Women and Family Life Center’s picturesque fireplace room.
