“The Bookey Readings” Presents Wes McNair

The Harlow Gallery poetry series “The Bookey Readings” is pleased to present an evening
featuring Poet Laureate Wes McNair, one of Maine’s, and the nation’s finest poets at 7PM on Friday, November 20. Refreshments are served. A $3 donation is appreciated at the door to benefit the Harlow Gallery.

McNair’s reading will take up the theme of praise and celebration. Offered in the season of Thanksgiving, it will put aside life’s conflicts and imperfections, gathering participants around the common table of poetry to share one of poetry’s oldest inspirations: gratitude. How do you sing the praises of cigarettes, or reveal the blessings of a stroke, or celebrate a troublesome family dog? McNair finds a way in these poems of a grateful heart.

Poet Philip Levine has called Wesley McNair “one of the great storytellers of contemporary poetry.” Wes McNair is Maine’s 4th Poet Laureate. He has won grants from the Fulbright and Guggenheim foundations, two Rockefeller Fellowships, two NEA grants in creative writing, and an Emmy Award. He has twice been invited to read his poetry by the Library of Congress. He was recently selected for a United States Artists Fellowship as one of America’s “finest living artists,” and in April of this year received the PEN New England Award for Poetry, given for his latest collection, The Lost Child.

This is the 8th evening and last of the 2015 poetry year at The Bookey Readings at the Harlow. We are honored to have Wes McNair close out this fantastic year of spoken word with us.

A new schedule of great poets will begin again in April of 2016.

During the reading guests will enjoy “A Survey of Computer Use in Art” on view November 6-28, 2015 at the Harlow Gallery. The Exhibition features the work of over 34 Maine artists, demonstrating some of the diverse ways in which computers, software or other digital tools are being use to create art in Maine. Gallery hours are Wednesday -Saturday, 12-6pm and is free and open to the public.

The Harlow Gallery, a membership based 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to connecting and celebrating art, artists and community in downtown historic Hallowell since 1963, was recently voted “Best Gallery in Maine” for 2015 by the readers of Down East Magazine.
