Join us in welcoming the Poet Laureate of New Hampshire, Alice B. Fogel, to our store where she will be reading from, discussing, and signing her new poetry collection A Doubtful House.
A marriage houses two wildly distinct entities, each one in turn a form containing its own unruly spirit. Addressing its inhabitants with humor, love, sorrow, anger, confusion, and hope, A Doubtful House explores what happens to boundaries—psychological, emotional, physical, even syntactical—when people live together for a long time.
Alice B Fogel is the Poet Laureate of New Hampshire (2014-2019). In addition to Strange Terrain, a guide to appreciating poetry without necessarily "getting" it, she is the author of five poetry collections, most recently, A Doubtful House (2017). Others include Interval: Poems Based on Bach's Goldberg Variations (2015), which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature & the New Hampshire Literary Award in Poetry, and Be That Empty, a national bestseller. A nine-time Pushcart nominee & recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship & other awards, her poems appear in many journals & anthologies, including Best American Poetry & Poet’s Choice. She lives in Walpole, NH, & works with learning disabled students at Landmark College in Putney, VT.
