Poet Rae Marie Bruce

On Tuesday, October 25, poet Rae Marie Bruce will be at the library to read from her latest collection, This Glorious Disorder. Bruce is a former Merrimack resident and MHS teacher who began writing poetry with her creative writing students. While teaching, she helped found a writing center, wrote a two-semester creative writing curriculum, and taught American literature and creative writing. She has a BA from the University of New Hampshire, an MA in literature and writing from Rivier College, and an MFA. from Vermont College.

Bruce's collection, in keeping with this fall's One Book, One Town theme of Yankee stories,  teems with New England energy, seasons, and characters. The poet uses embellished family stories to create poems depicting the idiosyncrasies of late relatives. Now these people come alive on the pages of this book as they experience both the joys and sorrows of life. Visit her website.

Copies of This Glorious Disorder will be available to purchase with cash or check. Registration  for this program is suggested.
