Book Launch, Justen Ahren

Sunday May 19, 2019
6:00pm— Free

A Machine For Remembering is former Martha's Vineyard Poet Laureate Justen Ahren's second collection of poetry.  Three years in the making, the book includes black and white photographs from several trips to Europe to work with refugees and document the stories of refugees living in camps and elsewhere on the continent.   This is a book of listening and witness to one of the defining human crises of our times.  

Ahren was West Tisbury, Massachusetts Poet Laureate from 2013-2016 and Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts Poet Laureate from 2017-2019.
