Keene - Ernest Hebert discussing and signing "The Contrarian Voice and Other Poems"

Ernest Hebert will be reading from and discussing his newly published collection of poetry The Contrarian Voice and Other Poems. In his introduction Ernie Hebert claims the contrarian voice may be his own, but it came to him through the character of Howard Elman, a protagonist in the seven novels of his Darby Chronicles set in a fictional town in southwestern New Hampshire. In this new collection of poetry, the award-winning author writes of the trials, tribulations, and worsening plight of the working man, memorializing the “dirty-face people” who “put down the asphalt for the highways, stoked the foundry fires, built the rockets, and packed the computer chips…”

Ernest Hebert is the author of thirteen books, including the critically acclaimed Darby Chronicles, seven novels of “life, death, and laughs in a small fictional town in New Hampshire (1979-2014).” Born in Keene,  Hebert is now professor of English (Creative Writing) emeritus at Dartmouth College, the first faculty member to be tenured as a fiction writer there. He and his wife Medora live in Westmoreland, New Hampshire.
