The Coursen Readings

I had a wonderful reading with New Hampshire poet Sarah Anderson and Maine poet Jim Thatcher at Brunswick’s Curtis Memorial Library February 11. Four Sunday afternoon Coursen Readings are a highlight of Longfellow Days, a month-long literary celebration. Longfellow studied and taught at Brunswick’s Bowdoin College and the community honors him every February. A fire roared in the fireplace and the audience was engaged and responsive. In a happy coincidence, the poets all included a few poems exploring the environment and its role in our lives. A good time was had by all!
