Robert Pinsky to lead poetry reading

Continue reading below

Robert Pinsky, the ninth poet laureate of the United States and now a professor at Boston University, will take part in a free program with several local poets at 3 p.m. Oct. 6 in the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School commons, 379 Lexington St. Pinsky will lead a reading from his new book, “Singing Stories: Learning to Write (and Read) Poetry by Studying with the Masters,’’ with Waltham poets Ben Berman, Elisabeth Carter, and Gregory Lawless in a presentation cosponsored by the Back Pages Books shop. As poet laureate in the late 1990s, Pinsky created and oversaw the Favorite Poem Project, which encourages Americans to share their most-loved works. More than 18,000 people, ranging from kindergartners to senior citizens, contributed to the effort; the collection is available online at www.favoritepoem.org . For more information on the poetry reading and to RSVP for the event, visit the Moody Street bookstore’s website, www.backpagesbooks.com.
