Poets Jessica Fisher and Mary Ruefle present a reading and conversation in celebration of their new books.

Fisher’s third book of poetry, Daywork (Milkweed Editions, 2024), takes its title from the giornata—the fresco painting term for the section of wet plaster that can be painted in a single day. Fisher is an associate professor of English at Williams College.

Mary Ruefle is a prolific writer of poetry and prose, including most recently The Book (Wave Books, 2023) and Dunce (Wave Books, 2019), which was a finalist for the 2020 Pulitzer Prize. She is the poet laureate of Vermont.

Free. Accessible seats available.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
