David Ferry: The Louisa Solano Poetry Series
November 5, 2013, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Cambridge Public Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA

The Cambridge Public Library's new poetry series continues with acclaimed poet and translator David Ferry, as he reads from Bewilderment: New Poems and Translations, winner of the 2012 National Book Award for Poetry. Ferry is the Sophie Chantal Hart Professor Emeritus of English at Wellesley College and a visiting lecturer in creative writing at Boston University. He was elected in 1998 to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

The library presents this series in honor of Louisa Solano, former owner of the Grolier Book Shop and patron of the poetry community. Her significant donation to our Archives and Special Collections includes a substantial collection of signed first editions from members of the Cambridge poetry community.
