In a Green Shade: An Evening of Poems in the Garden at Long Hill

September 17, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$12 – $15

Join us in the gardens of Long Hill with nationally acclaimed poet and lifelong gardener Tess Taylor and some of New England’s most celebrated poets for en evening in the good green shade of poetry.

In her new poetry anthology, released this fall, Taylor brings together a diverse range of contemporary poets who celebrate joyful connections to the natural world. Several of our most well-known contemporary writers, including Ross Gray, Jericho Brown, Mark Doty, Jane Hirshfield, Ada Limón, and Danusha Laméris are featured.

On September 17th, Tess Taylor, and New England Poets including Beverly resident January Gill O’Neil, Patty Crane, Brian Simoneau, Anna Ross and Cleopatra Mathis will read poems that celebrate the generative force of gardening, and the reparative spaces gardens offer. Arrive early to admire a mid September night in the Sedgwick Gardens, then join us on the events terrace for sparkling cider and refreshments, and to savor words that celebrate our connectedness to plants and soil, to human and non human life, and to tending and attention. Poems and gardens are both acts of stewardship and care, and they help us excavate wonder, curiosity and fascination.
