Twenty Summers and The Grolier Poetry Foundation and Forums Trust present
Provincetown lost one of its greatest writers, observers, and community members this winter with the passing of Mary Oliver. Her unique perception of the world and the words she used to describe it have inspired and influenced many. To celebrate the gift of her poetry, Twenty Summers and The Grolier Poetry Foundation and Forums Trust (the oldest poetry bookstore in America, located in Cambridge) will bring together four distinguished poets to read from their favorite works by Mary Oliver and discuss her powerful legacy.
About the Grolier: The Grolier Poetry Foundation and Forums Trust is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves as the anchor for the work of the Grolier, established to preserve our impressive legacy of cultural work. The Grolier Poetry Book Shop, the oldest poetry bookshop in the United States, is located at 6 Plympton Street, Cambridge, Mass. Along with the Grolier Poetry Press, the shop supports the foundation's mission, which is to keep poetry alive and to celebrate the unifying voice of poetry.
