The Unfastening: A Poetry Hour With Wes McNair

October 27, 2017, 4:00 PM5:30 PM


In a dark time, unfastened by loss and despair, how does one find one’s way back to the world again? Former Maine Poet Laureate Wes McNair’s new collection, The Unfastening, seeks to answer this question through poems of sorrow, and hope, and joy.

McNair will read selected poems and talk about the complex, unexpected process through which the book reached its final form. This event will also serve to launch The Unfastening website, the latest digital collaboration between McNair, Special Collections, and Academic Information and Technology Services. Reception to follow.

Location: Robinson Room, Miller Library, Colby College, Mayflower Hill Drive, Waterville.
