In 1861, both the Union and the Confederacy claimed to be fighting for freedom. Both used the same marching song, 'The Battle Cry of Freedom.'

Celebrate the release of the new poetry collection by Andover's Poet Laureate, Linda Flaherty Haltmaier. To the Left of the Sun won the 2018 International Book Award for Poetry. The evening will include a reading from her latest work.
"This remarkable collection is as much a celebration of life as it is a poignant exploration of grief. Haltmaier’s poems are both lush and economical. Her images arrest us. Nature is everywhere, and we are constantly touching it with our fingertips and brushing against it with our cheeks. Watch out, reader! These ‘words with glossy berries’ will ‘lure you in’ and have ‘prickers to make you bleed.’ These poems will remake you and set you wandering among the fields, feeling fully alive." --Kristin Bock, award-winning author of Cloisters.
