Help us celebrate National Poetry Month
Maine Poet Laureate to Speak at KFL "[He is] a master craftsman with a remarkable ear." - Maxine Kumin
Wesley McNair, the fourth Maine Poet Laureate, will read from his newest book, The Lost Child on Friday, April 24th at 2 PM. McNair has published eight books of poetry. The author of three volumes of nonfiction, he has also edited six anthologies of Maine writing, including four that feature Maine poetry.
Few authors are as well versed in the history of Maine poetry or the work of Maine's contemporary poets as Wesley McNair. In addition to writing poetry, McNair writes on the craft of poetry in his many personal and critical essays. McNair's essays on the power of place have also earned him high regard for his prose skills.
