The event will be a celebration of the poetry of Robert Frost, 100 years after the publication in the U.S. of his first books, A Boy's Will and North of Boston. The event is free and handicap-accessible.

In November we will return to the usual day, time, and location of our reading series: Saturdays at 3:00 pm at the Newburyport Public Library. Please check the schedule for exact dates.

The Powow River Poets are a gathering of accomplished New England poets, centered in Newburyport, MA, but including members from as far as the Boston area and New Hampshire.   Members are widely published in journals, anthologies, and their own collections. and have won numerous awards for both original poetry and translations.  The thrust of the group is toward formal prosody, and it is best known in that regard, but while many members employ rhyme, meter and form, others write primarily or exclusively in free verse. 

Powow River poetry readingIn addition to a monthly members workshop, the group participates in readings and cultural events throughout the area; and hosts a nationally recognized bimonthly poetry reading series  which features both prominent guest poets and Powow members.  Readings normally take place on the second Saturday of alternate months at 3:00 p.m., at Newburyport Public Library, 94 State Street, in Newburyport.
