Poets on Poets: Lawrence Raab to discuss Stephen Dunn

The Mount is excited to launch an exciting new poetry series this summer! Poets on Poets will provide the opportunity to hear two renowned poets, Lawrence Raab and Mark Wunderlich, talk about a poet who has meant a great deal to his own writing, read from that poets work, and share some of his own poems as well. Together these talks and readings will explore the inspiration and the artistic process that informs poetry as a whole.

On Thursday, July 16, at 5 p.m., Raab will talk about his long collaboration with the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Stephen Dunn, with whom he has published a collection of poems they wrote together.

Lawrence Raab is the author of nine books of poetry, including What We Dont Know About Each Other, nominated for the National Book Award, Visible Signs: New and Selected Poems, and the forthcoming Or So It Seemed to Me Then. The recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation, he teaches writing and literature at Williams College.

On Thursday, August 13, at 5 p.m., Mark Wunderlich, recent winner of The Rilke Prize, will talk about the importance of the great German poet Rainer Maria Rilke to his own work.

Mark Wunderlich is the author of three collections of poetry, The Anchorage, Voluntary Servitude, and The Earth Avails, winner of the 2014 Rilke Prize. The recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, and the Amy Lowell Traveling Fellowship, he teaches writing and literature at Bennington College.

Now more than ever, healthcare professionals need a revolutionary framework to deal with chronic metabolic illnesses swamping our society.

The Bookstore in Lenox: Irene Willis- Reminder
The Bookstore, 11 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA 01240
Thursday, July 23, 2015 |7:00 PM|

Reading: Irene Willis- Reminder (poetry)

On a trip with her daughter in an attempt to untangle family mysteries, a woman finds herself revisiting, with growing understanding and even humor, the emotional landscape of her life - a life impacted by her father's alcoholism but ultimately warmed by the pleasures of a long second marriage, her awareness of the varied forms love can take, and what survives.
"Starting out in The Depression and moving along over decades that follow, these unerringly honest, spare, sharp-edged poems have an eye for just the right details. Sometimes comic, wry, her family mysteries also make a compelling story. Willis brings us a memoir and a social history whose intensity and pacing make this book hard to put down. I can only be grateful for this poet's work and look forward to more."- Colette Inez
A book signing will follow the event and of course, THE GET LIT WINE BAR will be open!

The Bookstore in Lenox: Lori Baker- The Glass Ocean
For Immediate Release:
The Bookstore, 11 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA 01240
Sunday, July 19, 2015 |3:00 PM|

Reading: Lori Baker- The Glass Ocean

Lori Baker, author of the critically acclaimed new novel, The Glass Ocean, will
read from her fiction on Sunday, July 19 at 3:00 PM at The Bookstore , 11 Housatonic Street, Lenox, MA 01240.
Write in retrospect, from the vantage of a distant shore.

Flame-haired, six-foot-two in stocking feet, eighteen-year-old Carlotta Dell'oro recounts the lives of her parents-solitary glassmaker Leopoldo Dell'oro and beautiful, unreachable Clotilde Girard-and discovers in their loves and losses, their omissions and obsessions, the circumstances of her abandonment and the weight of her inheritance. Thomas Pynchon calls debut novelist Lori Baker "a storyteller with uncanny access to the Victorians, not only to the closely woven texture of their days but also to the dangerous nocturnal fires being attended to in their hearts."
The Glass Ocean, the book from which she'll read, received plaudits from major
literary writers, including Thomas Pynchon, Joanna Scott and Harry Mathews. Man-
Booker-Prize recipient John Banville called the book "that rarest of things, a historical
novel, or at least a novel set in history, that is also a work of art. Lori Baker is a
captivating story-teller, and her prose has the flash and fire of molten glass." The novel
went on to receive high praise in reviews appearing in The Guardian (UK) - where it was
referred to as "a haunting gem of a novel," Sydney Daily News (Australia), The Irish
Times, on "Bill's Books" a feature of the NBC New York's "Today Show" and in the
Providence Journal, where it was also cited at year's end as being one the best books of
2013.
Baker's three other books are collections of short fiction: Crash & Tell (LSU
Press, 2011), Crazy Water: Six Fictions (NYU Press, 1996, winner of the Mamdouha S.
Bobst Prize) and Scraps (paradigm press, 1995). She lives and works in Providence, R.I.
Her reading, which is free and open to the public, will be followed by a book signing and meet the author.
As always, THE GET LIT WINE BAR will be OPEN!

Wilde in America: Oscar Wilde and the Invention of Modern Celebrity
David M. Friedmans lively, and often hilarious talk brings us back to January 3, 1882, when Oscar Wilde, a 27-year-old geniusat least by his own reckoningarrived in New York. The Dublin-born Oxford man had made such a spectacle of himself in London with his eccentric fashion sense, his acerbic wit, and his extravagant passion for art and home design that Gilbert & Sullivan wrote an operetta lampooning him. He was hired to go to America to promote that musical by presenting lectures on interior decorating. But Wilde had his own business plan. He would go to promote himself. And he did, traveling some 15,000 miles and visiting 150 American cities as he created a template for fame creation that still works today. Though he was only the author of a self-published book of poems and an unproduced play, he presented himself as a star, taking the stage in satin breeches and a velvet coat with lace trim as he sang the praises of sconces and embroidered pillowsbut, most of all, himself. What Wilde so presciently understood is that fame could launch a career, as well as cap one. But Wilde was no mere clown; he was a strategist. From his antics in London to his manipulation of the mediaWilde gave 100 interviews in America, more than anyone else in the world in 1882he designed every move to increase his renown. There had been famous people before him, but Wilde was the first to become famous for being famous. Wilde in America is an enchanting tale of travel and transformation, comedy and capitalisman unforgettable story that teaches us about our present, as well as our past. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. David M. Friedman was a staff writer for the Philadelphia Daily News and New York Newsday before he began writing books. He is the author of A Mind of Its Own: A Cultural History of the Penis, which was published in twenty countries, and The Immortalists: Charles Lindbergh, Dr. Alexis Carrel, and Their Daring Quest to Live Forever. His latest book, Wilde in America: Oscar Wilde and the Invention of Modern Celebrity, is the topic of his talk at The Mount. *** Refund requests will only be honored if made more than 1 week prior to lecture date.

The Bront Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects
Deborah Lutz current book is entitled The Bront Cabinet: Three Lives in Nine Objects, a unique and lovingly detailed biography of a literary family that has enthralled readers for nearly two centuries, and the topic of her talk at The Mount. Lutz illuminates the complex and fascinating lives of the Bronts through the things they wore, stitched, wrote on, and inscribed. By unfolding the histories of the meaningful objects in their family home in Haworth, she re-creates the sisters daily lives while moving us chronologically forward through the major biographical events: the death of their mother and two sisters, the imaginary kingdoms of their childhood writing, their time as governesses, and their determined efforts to make a mark on the literary world. From the miniature books they made as children to the blackthorn walking sticks they carried on solitary hikes on the moors, each personal possession opens a window onto the sisters world, their beloved fiction, and the Victorian era. A description of the brass collar worn by Emilys bull mastiff, Keeper, leads to a series of entertaining anecdotes about the influence of the familys dogs on their writing and about the relationship of Victorians to their pets in general. The sisters portable writing desks prove to have played a crucial role in their writing lives: it was Charlottes snooping in Emilys desk that led to the sisters first publication in print, followed later by the publication of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Charlottes letters provide insight into her relationships, both innocent and illicit, including her relationship with the older professor to whom she wrote passionately. And the bracelet Charlotte had made of Anne and Emilys intertwined hair bears witness to her profound grief after their deaths. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org. Deborah Lutz is an Associate Professor of Victorian Literature and Culture in the Department of English at Long Island University. Her scholarship focuses on material culture; the history of attitudes toward death and mourning; the history of sexuality, pornography and erotica; and gender and gay studies.Her books include The Dangerous Lover: Gothic Villains, Byronism, and the Nineteenth-Century Seduction Narrative; Pleasure Bound: Victorian Sex Rebels and the New Eroticism, and Relics of Death in Victorian Literature and Culture. Her writing has appeared in numerous journals and collections, including Novel: A Forum on Fiction; Victorian Literature and Culture; The Oxford History of the Novel in English, and Cabinet.

Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad
Eric Fonerstalk about his latest book, Gateway to Freedom: The Hidden History of the Underground Railroad, recounts the dramatic stories of thousands of fugitive slaves who journeyed to freedom along the eastern corridor of the United States, and the antislavery activists who defied the law to help them reach freedom. These networks of antislavery resistance, centered in New York City, became known as the Underground Railroad. Forced to operate in secrecy by hostile laws, courts, and politicians, the citys underground-railroad agents helped more than 3,000 fugitive slaves reach freedom between 1830 and 1860. Until now, their stories have remained largely unknown, their significance little understood. Building on fresh evidenceincluding a detailed record of slave escapes secretly kept by Sydney Howard Gay, one of the key organizers in New YorkFoner elevates the Underground Railroad from folklore to sweeping history. The many stories of individual courage, full of memorable characters making their first appearance on the historical stage, illuminate a network of operatives both formal and informal that played a powerful role in causing sectional conflict and the Civil War.
