New Hampshire Public Radio is proud to announce United States Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith as the 2018 winner of the Hall-Kenyon Prize in American Poetry.
The award honors the late Donald Hall and Jane Kenyon—married poets who lived and wrote at Hall’s ancestral home in Wilmot, New Hamspshire. Hall is a former poet laureate of the United States and a recipient of the 2010 National Medal of the Arts, and Kenyon is a former poet laureate of New Hampshire. After a long and lauded career, Donald Hall passed away this past June.
Smith will accept the award at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire. The evening will include a reading from Smith as well as a remembrance of Donald Hall.
Cost: $10 general admission; $5 students. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the poet. Purchase tickets online.
