Women's History Month Celebration

Join us on Thursday, March 30th at 7 p.m. at the Brookline Booksmith to celebrate Women’s History Month with a reading by Moira Linehan and Mary Pinard, poets who think and write deeply about women’s lives: women as artists and weavers, as travelers and chroniclers, and as wives and widows.

Moira Linehan is the author of four collections of poetry. Her first, If No Moon, was selected as winner of the 2006 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry open competition and published the following year by Southern Illinois University Press. In 2015 that press published her second collection, Incarnate Grace. Both books were named Honor Books in Poetry in the Massachusetts Book Awards. In 2020 Linehan had two collections come out: Toward from Slant Books and & Company from Dos Madres Press.

Mary Pinard is the author of two books of poetry, Portal (2014), and Ghost Heart (2022), which won the 2021 Ex Ophidia Press Prize for Poetry. Her play, Heart/Roots: Wabaunsee County, was published by Volland Press in 2022. Her poems have been variously incised in glass, shaped in wire, adhered to an exhibit wall, and set to music (“On the Wing: A Celebration of Birds in Words and Music”). She teaches literature and poetry courses in the Arts & Humanities Division at Babson College.
