Forchion to read his latest book of poems


BRATTLEBORO —William Forchion to read from his recent work at Brooks Memorial Library at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11.

Forchion is a director, producer, poet, clown, acrobat, stuntman, father, friend, minister, coach, writer, and teacher, all in one package. He will read from "Sacred & Sacrosanct," a collection of poems and discuss his latest project, #ApoemAday, a year-long project of daily poems. The reading will take place in the downstairs reading room of Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St.

Fueled by his desire to inspire and entertain, Forchion grew up in Hammonton, N.J., where life on a farm nurtured his creative imagination. In 2017, he was selected to be a U.S. State Department cultural exchange Ambassador for the Arts, making two trips to Turkmenistan, and has called Brattleboro his home since 1998.

Free and open to the public, this venue is wheelchair accessible.
