Author Update | Helen Houghton

The Music Lover's Poetry AnthologyWe spent a fun evening with Helen Handley Houghton, co-editor of the new book, The Music Lover’s Poetry Anthology. What is it? It’s Naomi Shihab Nye and a Violin, Billy Collins at a Nightclub, and Amy Lowell at An Opera House. It’s Leonard Cohen listening to His Master’s Voice; and Hayden Carruth speaking of Billie Holiday. In short, it’s the best of everything we love about music and meter combined into this beautiful volume of poetry that you will want to keep by your bedside (or piano) to enjoy over and over again. A board member of the Academy of American Poets, Helen returned to her old stomping grounds to share this book with us and we were lucky to have a bookseller and our friend John Major join Helen in reading poems and playing the guitar.
