Monday, February 8th Books and Bites: Miriam MacNair discusses Poet Denise Levertov

levertovOur very own librarian, Miriam MacNair, will discuss the life and work of poet Denise Levertov, focusing on The Collected Poems of Denise Levertov and on two biographies--Denise Levertov:  A Poet's Life by Dana Greene and A Poet's Revolution:  The Life of Denise Levertov by Donna Krolik Hollenberg.

"Books and Bites" on Monday, February 8th at 11:00 AM in the Assembly Room of the Belmont Public Library

Born in England in 1923, Denise Levertov emigrated in 1948 to the United States.  She published her first book of poetry in England at the age of twenty-three, but it was not until she moved to the United States that she found her poetic voice, helped by poets William Carlos Williams, Robert Duncan, and Robert Creeley.  Levertov was acclaimed by Kenneth Rexroth in The New York Times as "the most subtly skillful poet of her generation."  
All are welcome to attend this free program.  Refreshments will be provided.  The Assembly Room is handicapped accessible.

A Night with Cellist Mike Block

MikeBlockMike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist, composer, and educator. His one-man show, singing and playing the cello, is a special experience. After becoming one of the first wave of cellists to adopt a strap in order to stand while playing, Mike was the first standing cellist to perform at Carnegie Hall, which the NY Times called "Breathless ... Half dance, half dare."


Wednesday, March 23rd at 7PM in the Assembly Room
