4-5-10: The Poetry of Sue Ellen Thompson

April 5, 2010 at 6:12 am 1 comment

Sue Ellen Thompson is a poet whose work is personal, universal, evocative, and elegant.  You may have encountered her poems on Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac or in the U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser’s syndicated newspaper column.   In her most recent book, The Golden Hour, Ms. Thompson makes poignant and trenchant observations about her life, her parents, their marriage, and her mother’s final illness.  Later this month, the Maryland Library Association will present her with their 2010 Maryland Author Award.  Sue Ellen Thompson moved from Connecticut to Maryland’s Eastern Shore about 4 years ago; she joins Tom from there.  Thompson will give a reading of her work Thursday afternoon at 2:00 at the Easton Club East, off Dutchman’s Lane on Rte. 50 in Easton.
