A Love Of Poetry Strikes Home

Amy Gorin of Massachusetts Poetry Festival (Mass Poetry)

Amy Gorin of Massachusetts Poetry Festival (Mass Poetry)

This weekend, Salem welcomes the 2011 Massachusetts Poetry Festival.

Throughout the festival, there will be readings, workshops and music. To mark the event, we asked Amy Gorin of Wellesley to pick a poem and read it for us. Gorin is the mother of Andrew Gorin, a poet and lead coordinator of this year’s festival.

Gorin selected Wendell Berry’s “The Peace of Wild Things.”
