Common Threads with Michael West and Special Guest Fan Ogilvie
On Saturday, Michael West will host a Common Threads poetry discussion at the Vineyard Haven Library from 2 -3:30 pm with special guest Fan Ogilvie, former poet laureate of West Tisbury.
These Common Threads discussions are sponsored by the Mass Poetry Foundation as part of Poetry Month events statewide. For this discussion, Fan Ogilvie has chosen to work with three poems exhibiting a very wide range of styles:
- No. 1129 – Tell all the Truth but tell it slant by Emily Dickinson
- For the Union Dead by Robert Lowell
- if see no end in is by Frank Bidart
All are welcome to attend and join in the discussions. You can pick up a copy of the poems at the Vineyard Haven Public Library. Or you can download the poems and a reading guide from this web site:
