Join the Rosenbach Museum & Library in celebrating National Poetry Month as we honor the life and work of poet Elizabeth McFarland.
Rosenbach poet-in-residence Nathalie Anderson and internationally-recognized poet Daniel Hoffman will read from Over the Summer Water by poet and editor Elizabeth McFarland. Ms. McFarland was the poetry editor of Ladies' Home Journal from 1948 to 1962, publishing such poets as W.H. Auden and Marianne Moore. Much of her correspondence with Moore, thanks to Mr. Hoffman and Ms. McFarland’s generosity, is preserved in the Rosenbach’s renowned Marianne Moore Collection. Mr. Hoffman is a former Poet Laureate & the Felix Schelling Professor Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania.
An exhibition illustrating Ms. McFarland’s career will be on display from April 18-26, 2009.
The event is FREE with museum admission.
