Members’ Choice: American Moons

Ailsa Steinert

Join Athenæum member Ailsa Steinert for a reading from her new, self-published book of poetry, American Moons. Steinert has always found that the natural world of New England—its land, weather, and water—strengthens and changes what she says, both literally and metaphorically, and infuses her life. She hopes that Americans can draw strength from our natural surroundings.

Ailsa Steinert lives in Manchester, Massachusetts, and taught English for many years at the Pingree School. She was a long-time member of the Workshop for Publishing Poets in Brookline, Massachusetts. Her work has appeared in the Comstock Review, Orion, The Larcome Review, the Saltmarsh Press anthology Rough Place Plain: Poems of the Mountains, the Audubon Society’s Sanctuary, in an anthology of poems on Alzheimer’s disease and online in Blue Ocean Institute’s Sea Stories. She was a finalist in Inkwell’s 2007 poetry contest.
