Last April when I asked New Hampshire poets to recommend books of poetry by other NH poets, Scott T. Hutchison recommended this book Because he had read an advance copy and the book wasn't available yet I didn't include it in the project.
"Bald's work is deeply connected--to nature, to the past, to the human condition. The poems reach for those connections, and in doing so, join hands with the reader. This is a collection of reverence, and Bald is, thankfully, nothing less than both skillful and honest." --Scott T. HutchisonTo get a sense of Barbara Bald's work, check out this video of a reading she did at Exeter Town Hall.
