On Saturday, Jan. 25, at 3 pm, the West Tisbury library will host the Poetry Book Club. According to a press release, there will be a discussion of a contemporary poet’s work each month, and if there is time, there will be a brief guided writing exercise based on their work. This month, the featured poet will be Frank O’Hara. The book is titled “Selected Poems: Frank O’Hara,” edited by Mark Ford, and copies of the book can be requested at any of the Island libraries.
Poetry Book Club is led by Martha’s Vineyard poet laureate Jill Jupen, and Donald Nitchie, who also leads the Poetry Drop-In writing sessions. The club meets on the last Saturday of each month in the library’s large conference room. It’s free and open to the public.
