Sonnets In April

March 17, 2008

Victoria Murphy, PhD. will be presenting four sessions of sonnet reading and discussion at the Essex Library on Tuesday mornings at 10a.m. in April–April 8, 15, 22, and 29. Dr. Murphy has taught at Hunter College, Santa Fe Community College, The Brearley School and the Acadia Senior College in Maine. Join her in reading many sonnets, ancient and modern, and perhaps discover new connections between structure and sense. Writing a sonnet of one’s own may become irresistible.

A $5 contribution to cover the cost of materials is requested, to be paid at the first session. For more information, contact Dr. Murphy at 526-4426 or

To register for the program. please call the Library at 767-1560.
