POETRY READING BY RAY KEIFETZ - November 26, 2023 at 1:00 p.m.

The Library is pleased to welcome back author/poet Ray Keifetz to read from his new book of poetry Museum Beasts.

 The reading will be held in the White Mountain Room of the Library on Sunday afternoon, November 26 at 1:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served following the reading. Ray will also have copies of both his books available for purchase and signing.
Ray Keifetz is the author of two poetry collections: Night Farming in Bosnia, Bitter Oleander Press, winner of that press’s Library of Poetry award; and Museum Beasts, Broadstone Books. His stories and poems have appeared in the Ashland Creek Press, Gargoyle, Kestrel, Osiris, Phantom Drift, RHINO, and others, and have received three Pushcart Prize nominations. He lives and writes in rural New Hampshire and spends a great deal of time in Randolph as a member of the Beringer family.

From the publisher: "This new poetry collection begins with images of violence and loss, of “blood prints / on the wall.” It tells of a world where “All that can be lost / has been lost.” That would seem to make for a grim undertaking, except it’s not quite true, for there remains memory, and imagination, and Ray Keifetz has imagined a vivid world into being – perhaps our world, or what it was, or what it will be – strange but recognizable, and strangely beautiful even when he ventures into dark places. His title poem calls to mind natural history dioramas depicting exotic animals in their lost habitats, “A meadow / in memory of meadows. / A sea / in memory of seas.” His poems serve a similar function, each a compelling vignette capturing a moment of life, in memory of life. Keifetz is a clear-eyed realist about our world – “Whoever praised the shore / lied about the tide” – and he knows how porous the boundary is separating human and beast: “How long did we hold / our two-leggedness, / our man and woman-ness, / before we dropped to our knees / and feasted?” But ultimately he is hopeful – “How long can it rain / until the rainbow” – and he shows a way forward in the simplest of acts, for in planting “even a seed — / you dig // the opposite / of a grave.”

The Electric Vehicle Showcase was a huge success. Thank you to all the EV owners who brought their vehicles to share, and to our generous sponsors: Big Day Brewing, Peak Health, and White Mountain Cafe and Bookstore.



The Ford F150 Lightning has enough storage room for a small person; or two, or three. Where is the engine? We had an impressive lineup of vehicles, including an ebike and electric riding lawn mower.
