The Youth Poet Laureate reading was a fine success, and we thank the NH Poet Laureate, Alice B. Fogel, and the three students, Rachel Sturges, Falon Smith, and Cate Dixson, for their enthusiastic participation. Keep your eyes on these poets as they weave their magic with words.

Thanks to all the Visitors to our successful Book Fair and to the 41 Students who entered our Poetry Contest! The Fair also raised almost $1000 for the Peterborough Town Library Campaign. Our Next Event will be a Poetry chapbook contest open to all residents in the USA with a valid domestic mailing address. Announcement details in late July.
