A new collection of poetry by Richard Blanco


The Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance and SPACE are honored to host the Maine launch of How to Love a Country, Richard Blanco's first new full-length collection of poetry since his 2013 turn as President Obama's inaugural poet. Blanco's reading will be followed by an on-stage conversation with the Portland Press Herald's Bob Keyes. 

Please join MWPA and SPACE for this very special reading and book signing. This event is expected to sell out, so advance tickets are recommended. Pre-registration for SPACE and MWPA members will be available March 4th-March 9th. 


If you are unable to attend the event but would like to reserve a signed copy of How to Love a Country, please contact Longfellow Books directly at (207) 772-4045.
