Book of the Week #43

The Boat of Quiet Hours: Poems by Jane Kenyon (St. Paul, Minn.: Graywolf Press, 1986).

One of the poems from this volume, Kenyon's second of her own poems, was featured recently on The Writers' Almanac recently: "Coming Home at Twilight in Late Summer."  It captures the time and place perfectly.

 Jane Kenyon was a New Hamphire poet in whose honor, along with her husband Donald Hall, the Hall-Kenyon Prize in American Poetry is given annually. This year's recipient is Sharon Olds who will give a reading in Concord, NH on October 30 at 7pm when she accepts the award.
