Enjoy an evening of poetry, prose, and photography celebrating the poetic explorations of New Hampshire’s diverse waterways.

On Tuesday, October 17th at 6:30 PM, join gifted writers William O’Daly and JS Graustein as they share excerpts from their new book “Water Ways”, a reflection on unique perspectives of beauty from the Connecticut Lakes to the Seacoast, Otter Brook to the Salmon Falls River, and the circumnavigation of Lake Winnipesaukee.

“Water Ways” is a collaborative work that celebrates “blue spaces” while reflecting on the varied perspectives each writer had brought to the project. O’Daly is the author of “The Road to Isla Negra” and will also be sharing some translated poetry by Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda. He lives in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Graustein holds a Master of Science degree in ecology and is the author of “How to Write an Exceptional Thesis or Dissertation” and is the calligrapher and editor in chief for Folded Word Press, located in Meredith, NH specializing in haiku collections, fast fiction and poetry chapbooks. She lives surrounded by trees in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Their work introduces the reader to “the most serene surface, the silence / of what we no longer remember: who we are, / to whom the loon calls across the emptiness”.
