Poetry series to begin Friday, Oct. 20, in Bristol

BRISTOL — Art on Main announces the third reading in their Written Word Out Loud poetry series. On Friday, Oct. 20, at 6:30 p.m. join William O’Daly and J.S. Graustein on their poetic explorations of New Hampshire’s waterways.
William  O’Daly is a poet, translator, fiction writer, and editor. His translations include eight books of the poetry of Chilean Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda published by Copper Canyon Press. Chapbooks of his own poems include “The Road to Isla Negra” (Folded Word) and “The Whale in the Web” (Copper Canyon Press).
O’Daly has also been granted permission from Copper Canyon Press to read excerpts from his latest translation of Pablo Neruda’s work “Crepusculario/Book of Twilight,” scheduled for launch in October. It will be the first time the work has been published in English.
Graustein is the Editor in Chief of “Folded Word” and holds a Master of Science in Biology. Her training as an aquatic ecologist lends unique perspectives to the beauty of the Granite State’s “blue spaces.” The poems, essays, and photographs in “Folded Word” celebrates New Hampshire’s gateways to “the most serene surface, the silence/of what we no longer remember: who we are,/to whom the loon calls across the emptiness.”
The readings, which are free and open to the public, will be followed by conversation and light refreshment. This event is supported by the Vermont Arts Council.
