Description:
 In honor of April as Poetry Month, the Blue Hill Public Library will sponsor a poetry reading by Deborah Cummins and Emily Blair Stribling, on Thursday April 18th at 7:00 PM. They will share their works, including from the new anthology of Maine women poets, Balancing Act 2.

Deborah Cummins is the author of two poetry collections, Counting the Waves and Beyond the Reach, as well as a collection of linked, place-based essays titled Here and Away: Discovering Home on an Island in Maine. Her poems and essays have appeared in nine anthologies and more than sixty journals and magazines. Currently, she is board president for Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance and a trustee of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. She resides in Deer Isle and Portland.

Emily Blair Stribling lives on a small farm in Brooklin, Maine with “an unreasonably patient husband and an assortment of children and animals.” Her poems have appeared in several magazines, including The New York Quarterly, Poets On, Chicago Review, Utah State Review, Baltimore Scene, Gravida, and Metamorphis. Finishing Line Press published her chapbook, The Mercy of Light. She won the American Book Award for her book, Anatomy Illustrated, and the New York Pen and Brush Society’s Award for poetry.

This event is co-sponsored by the library and Blue Hill Books. It is free and open to all. Books will be available for sale and signing. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
