January 19th, Green Drinks @ Two Ceres Street with Mimi White

The January 19th Green Drinks will feature Mimi White, poet laureate of Portsmouth from 2007-09.

Networking and green drinking starts casually at 6:00 and our speaker usually starts at 7:00 -- though this month we'll try to start a little bit earlier.

I look forward to hearing from Mimi as shares some poetry as well as her point of view about climate change, things that she can't necessarily say in a poem. Mimi is very active in environmental circles, in particular with the Rye Energy Committee.

Mimi has worked for over twenty-five years with students of all ages to help them create original and authentic work, be it poetry, memoir or non fiction writing. Mimi White has worked in a variety of settings including schools, libraries, prisons, residencies for the elderly, and universities. She has been a member of the faculty at the University of New Hampshire, Northern Essex Community College, and Lesley University. Her poems have been published in dozens of journals. They include Poetry, Harvard Review, West Branch, The Seattle Review, Yankee and Rivendell. Her book of poems, "The Last Island" was published in 2008.
