Poets at the Library

Monday, December 9, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Featured poets Edwin Romond and Lavinia Kumar read from their works for 20 minutes each, followed by an open-mic session.

Romond’s latest book is “Home Team: Poems about Baseball” (Grayson Books.) He has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and from the New Jersey and Pennsylvania state arts councils. His work has been featured on NPR’s “Writer’s Almanac,” and his poem, “Champion,” won the 2013 New Jersey Poetry Prize. A native of Woodbridge, he lives with his wife and son in Wind Gap, Pennsylvania.

 

 

Kumar’s chapbook, “Beauty. Salon. Art,” is the third for which she painted the cover art, this one based on a quote of Rainer Maria Rilke: “And, so I hold myself back and swallow the call-note of my dark sobbing” – in so many ways a description of poems in the book. Her two full-length books are “The Celtic Fisherman’s Wife: A Druid Life” and “The Skin and Under.” In her prior life she was involved in science and science education.

 

 

Presented in partnership with the US1 Poets’ Cooperative and Delaware Valley Poets.
