Eagle Pond is back next Tuesday!

Susan Lilley is the author of Venus in Retrograde (Burrow Press 2019) and the chapbooks Satellite Beach and Night Windows. A Florida native, she served as Orlando’s inaugural Poet Laureate. Her poetry and non-fiction have appeared in American Poetry Review, Gulf Coast, Poet Lore, The Southern Review, Drunken Boat, Saw Palm, Hippocampus, The Florida Review, Sweet, and other journals. She is a past winner of the Rita Dove Poetry Award and has held a State of Florida Individual Arts Fellowship. She has taught at University of Central Florida and Rollins College, and currently teaches literature and creative writing at Trinity Preparatory School in Winter Park. The Eagle Pond Authors Series was founded in 1998 by Hall and then Director of the Silver Center for the Arts Diane Alexander Jeffrey ’97. Hall served as co-curator until his death in 2018 and the series continues under the guidance of Plymouth State University Professor Liz Ahl. The series brings nationally known poets to central New Hampshire and is a memorable and meaningful part of the state’s arts and cultural landscape. Generous support from an anonymous donor helps keep this series free and open to the public. Copies of Venus in Retrograde will be available for sale at the reading from the Plymouth State University Bookstore; a book signing will follow the reading, which is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Silver Center for the Arts.
