Event Details

  • Date:

After a long delay, author and mycologist Larry Millman will be presenting at the Woods Hole Public Library, in an even bigger more diverse program than had been originally planned for the early Spring.

On Friday evening September 25 at 6 PM, Larry will read from his just-published book of poetry “Goodbye, Ice”, subtitled “Arctic Poems”. As the sunset lingers, the audience will hear his reflections of the natural and spiritual world of West Greenland, Labrador, and the Canadian Arctic. The poems are outgrowths of his personal journals from his wanderings in those northern reaches between 1979 and 2019. You will hear affectionate and lyric descriptions of snowy owls, lichens, arctic poppies, and more, with accompanying laments of global warming. His quirky humor can also be heard in some of the poems.

Plans are to have copies of his book available for sale and signing. Fingers crossed that the publisher will have it in our hands by the date. 

As with all events at the Library these days, this poetry reading will take place outside in the courtyard. People must call or email the Library to pre-register since the number of audience members is limited.
