Ben Berman Poetry Reading
Ben Berman will read from his new book, Strange Borderlands, and discuss how a first collection of poems from a small press managed to receive a Starred Review from Publishers Weekly.
Join us for a reading of poems that explore Berman’s adventures in Zimbabwe and what it means to return home – and to learn about the many avenues towards becoming a writer and paths to publication.
Ben Berman, a former Peace Corps Volunteer, is the author of the poetry collection, Strange Borderlands, and has received poetry awards from The New England Poetry Club, Massachusetts Cultural Council and Somerville Arts Council. He is the Assistant Poetry Editor of Solstice Quarterly and teaches creative writing classes in the Boston area.
