This event is free; no tickets are required.

The Harvard Square Book Circle, our in-store book club, will delve into poetry with the collection Common Threads: Seven Poems and a Wealth of Readers, a volume created by MassPoetry in conjunction with the 2011 Massachusetts Poetry Festival.

Common Threads seeks to connect a small amount of text—seven poems—to as large and broad a community of readers as possible. This microcollection collects seven poets who’ve written, lived, or worked in Massachusetts.

"We ask you not only to read these poems, but to experience them. We've added some background information, which we invite you to consider as you create time and space during National Poetry Month to connect these poems to your life. We encourage you to read these aloud and listen to recordings of the poems on our website, We hope you find the included questions and observations helpful in stimulating group discussion. But even more importantly, we hope you come to ask your own questions about the poems and share your own answers with one another and with us." —MassPoetry
