Pretty Halcyon Days,
on the Beach with Ogden Nash
Thursday May 18th   6:30 pm
Rye Public Library
Ogden Nash and his family spent their summers on Little Boar’s Head, in North Hampton, NH. Using examples from their original stage work, “Home is Heaven,” Pontine Theatre explores the ways in which Nash’s life on the New Hampshire seashore influenced his poems, giving the reader insight into the man, his character, and his ideas about family, society, and nature. These themes form a rich portrait of the poet and underscore how the intersection of literature and local history can deepen our understanding and appreciation of everyday events in our own backyard.
