The Dead Poets Remembrance Day 2014 celebration in Maine will take place this year in Portland's Western Cemetery at 5 PM, on Friday, October 10th.
"We are so glad to have 3 of Maine's finest poets on hand to help us celebrate our amazing literary history," said Walter Skold, the head of the Dead Poets Society of America. "Annie Finch, Steve Luttrell, and Megan Grumbling are going to be presenting the work of Maine poets Edna St. Vincent Millay, Pat Murphy, and Anne Hazelwood-Brady."
"Each year, besides celebrating our leading poetic voices, we try to bring back the voices of poets either forgotten or less well-known," said Skold. "Both Anne Hazelwood-Brady and John Neal, though more than a century apart, are both connected as activists for feminism in their day."
