Treasurer and longtime friend of The Frost Place, Deming Holleran, will be reading from her poetry collection, Gypsy Song, on Sunday, October 30th at the Lincoln Public Library in Lincoln, MA. The reading will begin at 2 pm.
Disturbance ripples under the surface of these seemingly placid poems, the debut collection of a poet whose thoughtful maturity shines through. The difficulties of a life are not the issue here; instead, generosity, compassion, and poignancy govern what she sees: the breakage throughout time and the fault lines of what has been mended. Despite ‘the keener pain’ of longing, Deming Holleran’s poems find a necessary acceptance and grace.
