I’m delighted to have the opportunity to read my poem “The Guitar Maker” at a special event to be held in Newburyport on Oct. 19. The Custom House Maritime Museum and WBUR are proud to sponsor this rare evening with Master Luthier Steve Klein, the man who built guitars for Joni Mitchell, Steve Miller, Sting, Stanley Clarke, and many others. Please join WBUR’s Jack Lepiarz for a reception, an exhibit of rare instruments, and a fascinating lecture on the art and science of modern lutherie. The beauty of these unique instruments will be brought to life with performances by Brendan Burns and John Tavano.
Never miss a chance to listen to what Rhina has to say. Here she is in conversation with Meghan Chakrabarti of WBUR, talking about translating Robert Frost’s poems into Spanish. You can also listen to her read two of her poems, the wonderful villanelle, “Guidelines,” and perhaps her most anthologized poem, “Bilingual/Bilingue.” (You’ll see a lovely photograph of Rhina, too!)
