The Writing Life

13189_1551905251689292_4459921968315249742_nFormer US Poet Laureate Donald Hall is a friend and neighbor to many of us in New Hampshire. His latest book, ESSAYS AFTER EIGHTY was released in late 2014 to critical acclaim.

In this collection of 14 autobiographical essays he reflects on aging, death, the craft of writing and his beloved landscape of New Hampshire.

Don’s recording was the first in the Story Preservation collection and he opened the door to us to many other poets including Maxine Kumin, Wes McNair and others.
