Bucks County’s rich literary tradition will once again resonate at the Peace Fair in Lahaska on Sept. 18.Along with a line-up of past and future laureates, reigning Bucks County Poet Laureate Jane Edna Mohler will top the bill, and time has been allotted afterward for an open mic reading.
Readings will take place in the open air from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Peace Fair attendees are invited to drop by for a poetic respite from the stress and racket of modern life.
As Robert Frost said, poetry provides “a momentary stay against confusion,” and hearing poetry spoken out loud under the giant oaks and maples of the Meeting House grounds will inspire you with the peacefulness of the moment in order to work more purposefully for peace in the larger world, fair organizers said.
Mohler’s full-length book of poems, “Broken Umbrellas,” was published by Kelsay Books in 2019. Her poems also appear in many literary journals. She is the 2016 winner of the Main Street Voices poetry competition, a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and a Robert Fraser finalist.
