Keene - Liz Ahl reading and signing "Beating the Bounds"

The title poem of Liz Ahl's brilliant collection, “Beating the Bounds”, investigates the ritual walking of the boundaries of a town every seven years. Ahl explores psychological and literal geographies, what it means to inhabit a space, and the beauties and mysteries she discovers there. These dazzling poems draw us in to the vibrant spaces they mark and make.

Liz Ahl is also the author of Home Economics, Talking About the Weather, Luck, and A Thirst That’s Partly Mine. Luck received the "Reader's Choice in Poetry" award at the 2011 New Hampshire Literary Awards. She has been awarded residencies at Playa, Jentel, The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and The Vermont Studio Center. After spending her childhood and adolescence as an itinerant Navy brat, and her young adulthood as a semi-itinerant student, she has found herself settled for going on twenty years in Holderness, New Hampshire. She is a faculty member in the English Department at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire.
