New England Poetry Club at MHSM

Thursday, April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In conjunction with National Poetry Month, the Medford Historical Society & Museum invites you to join Medford High English teacher and poet Max Heinegg and three other New England Poetry Club poets for a night of poetry and song. Max will perform some classic poems (from Keats to Frost) that he adapted into song, giving a brief talk about each poem and the way in which a great lyric can be read or sung. Denise Bergman is the author of five poetry books. “The Shape of the Keyhole” is about a woman falsely accused and hanged for murder. “Three Hands None” unravels assault and its aftermath. “A Woman in Pieces Crossed a Sea” dismantles the symbolism of the Statue of Liberty. “The Telling” unfolds a child refugee’s lifelong secret. “Seeing Annie Sullivan” explores the early life of Helen Keller’s teacher.  Kevin Gallagher, a poet, publisher, and political economist living in Greater Boston, will present poems from his recent books “And Yet it Moves” and “The Wild Goose.”  Gallagher edits “spoKe,” a Boston-based annual of poetry and poetics. Scott Ruescher is the author of “Waiting for the Light to Change” and the forthcoming “Above the Fold. Seating is limited; reserve you place through Eventbrite.
