Members of the Ogden family will begin the evening by reading poems written by their father. Community members are invited to read a poem of Ogden’s or one of their own that attends to what meant so much to Ogden: the beauty and mystery of the world, especially Rangeley, and peace among all living things. A sign-up sheet will be available at the start of the evening, since time will be limited.

During the second part of the evening, McNair will read. McNair is the author or editor of 19 books of poetry and essays. He is the recipient of many honors, fellowships and awards. He has been invited to read his poetry at the Library of Congress as well as countless colleges and universities.

As a teacher and poet laureate, McNair encourages people to experience the joy and magic of poetry. His love for Maine—its people, its stories, and its ways of life—shines in the titles of his poems.
