Amy Dryansky, Jeffery Harrison, and Daniel Tobin are all recent winners of the Massachusetts Book Award for Poetry, a prize that’s sponsored by the Massachusetts Center for the Book. Each poet will read from their work, and talk briefly about their experience as writers- not just about their achievements, but their struggles, the diverse paths each has taken that brought them to where they are today, and where they might go in the future. Come hear these three very different poets share their work, and talk about what it means to make your way as a writer in the world.
