Every month is poetry month at The Word Barn, but why not celebrate two local poets on a Sunday toward the end of April.
Come take in their powerful words. They both have new books, so let's celebrate these poets and their books, National Poetry Month, and spring all at once!
The event is free ($5/person suggested donation), but we ask that you register to save yourself a spot.
Todd Hearon’s books of poetry are Strange Land and No Other Gods; his third collection, Crows in Eden, just appeared in March, 2022. His novella, Do Geese See God (2021), was the inaugural publication of the new Brooklyn press, Neutral Zones, and his first solo album, Border Radio, appeared earlier that year. He lives and teaches in Exeter, NH, and counts the Word Barn as one of his favorite places on Earth.
Ralph Sneeden’s poems and essays have appeared in AGNI, American Poetry Review, The Common, Ecotone, Harvard Review, The Kenyon Review, New England Review, The New Republic, Ploughshares, Slate, The Surfer's Journal, and many other magazines. He is the author of two books of poetry: Evidence of the Journey (Harmon Blunt, 2007) and Surface Fugue (EastOver Press, 2021). Born in Los Angeles, he has lived in New England for many years and teaches at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire.
