Brian Tervenski, retired Instructor of English, offers an approachable introduction to poetry; from Bob Dylan to William Shakespeare, Robert Frost to Ben Jonson. The goal is not, in the words of poet Billie Collins, to “tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it.... to find out what it really means.” The group will read as many good poems as possible and develop techniques to more fully enjoy and appreciate poetry.

Women's Voices and Talents

The Library District, the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, and the Dutchess County Historical Society partner in a series of local programs: 2020 Focus: Women's Voices and Talents.
 
Join the Dutchess County Historical Society at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center for the inaugural presentation in the "Women's Voices and Talents" series.  With a century of organized effort of women seeking the right to vote, what were the historical roots of the arguments that were unique to Dutchess County? What was the final tipping point? Is there relevance and are there lessons for today?
 
Another part of the 2020 focus will be an exhibit and discussion of the works of Caroline Morgan Clowes, a LaGrange artist who was featured at the 1876 Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia as a member of the Hudson River School of painting.  Programs will investigate her impact on the School, her decline from public recognition after her death, and the DCHS work towards the restoration of her paintings and legacy.

Brian Tervenski, retired Instructor of English, offers an approachable introduction to poetry; from Bob Dylan to William Shakespeare, Robert Frost to Ben Jonson. The goal is not, in the words of poet Billie Collins, to “tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it.... to find out what it really means.” The group will read as many good poems as possible and develop techniques to more fully enjoy and appreciate poetry.

An Afternoon with Richard Russo

What makes a great author write? What is the motivation that drives a writer through the inevitable bouts of writer’s block? Come spend an hour with Richard Russo who won the Pulitzer Prize for Empire Falls and is currently promoting his new book Chances Are. Both Empire Falls and a later novel, Nobody’s Fool, were adapted to film, the latter partly filmed in Poughkeepsie.

Russo grew up in Gloversville, New York, and fondly remembers the town’s public library.  He told The New York Times, "I have such fond memories of the place, going there Saturday mornings with my grandfather or mother, who would wait forever for me to pick books. I just have this feeling that if it weren't for the Gloversville Free Library that I probably would not be a writer."

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Reservations required.
