Welcome to the 2017-18 Season of the Abbot Public Library's Poetry Salon! Our monthly series of discussions will focus on the Poet Laureates of the United States, starting with the most recent and

The September Poetry Salon features the poetry of Tracy K. Smith, the new Poet Laureate of the United States. Born in Falmouth, Massachusetts, but raised in Fairfield, California, she studied at Harvard and went on to receive her MFA from Columbia University. Smith's first collection, The Body's Question, won the Cave Canem Poetry Prize in 2002. Her second book, Duende, won the 2006 James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets. Her most recent collection, Life on Mars, won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

Smith has been praised for her "lyric brilliance and political impulses." Poet Toi Derricotte describes the surfaces of a Tracy K. Smith poem as "beautiful and serene, but underneath, there is always a sense of an unknown vastness." As Poet Laureate, Smith sees her responsibility as helping to raise the awareness of poetry and its value in our culture.

Please join Claire Keyes, Marblehead Poet and Professor Emerita at Salem State University, for a discussion of Tracy K. Smith's poems in the Abbot Public Library's Marblehead Room, on Sunday, September 17th, from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm. ... See more
