And, since there's so much to see, your ticket is good for two consecutive days. Take your time and see half the first day, then return the next day to catch what you missed. Learn More
<p>"A restless, original talent." That's how Hardison Prize judge Tom Sleigh describes David Rivard. Sleigh goes on to say, "the poems I've seen...rank him in my mind as one of the best poets now writing."</p> <p>David Rivard's poems and essays have appeared in numerous literary magazines, including New England Review, Ploughshares, Poetry, and TriQuarterly. David Rivard's latest work is Sugartown (Graywolf Press, 2006). Recently, The Washington Post Book World wrote, "Sugartown moves through familiar material, like the way a good mood and a good memory can make life seem rich and even death nearly acceptable. These street-wise, book-wise, eloquent poems have a bracing sureness and scope."</p> <p>Rivard's other work includes Bewitched Playground, Wise Poison (which won the James Laughlin Award of The Academy of American Poets) and Torque, which won the Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize. </p> <p>David Rivard teaches at Tufts University and in the MFA Writing Program at Vermont College. </p>
