Maxine Kunim studied with John Holmes very early in her career, one that only ended this year after having been a US and New Hampshire Poet Laureate. She developed her life-changing friendship with Anne Sexton in a class led by the "Tufts Poet" John Holmes.
Come to the grave of Holmes on Dead Poets Remembrance Day and help celebrate our poetic heritage here in Massachusetts. The event will begin at 5:30 and go until sunset. Here is a map to the Medford grave.
