    Name: "Have Love" - Book Signing presented by Dierdre Fagan
    Date: February 20, 2020
    Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Deirdre will be reading from her recently published book Have Love, a collection of poetry beginning and ending with love, but not the same love. Beginning youthfully, the poems move through marriage, divorce, remarriage, birth, illness, and death to survival. There is romantic and familial love, and some that is not love. We go on, often reluctantly, haltingly, but we go on. Have Love reminds its readers we do not have to “mate for life” to give and receive love, nor does new love have to undo what has been before. Where there is love, there is love. The poem “Outside In” won Best of the Net Finalist 2018. Books will be available for purchase.

    Deirdre Fagan is a widow, wife, and mother of two who has published poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, essays on literary criticism and pedagogy, and reference works. She is the author of the book Critical Companion to Robert Frost, and the articles, “Kay Ryan and Poetic Play,” published in the CEA Critic, and “Emily Dickinson’s Unutterable Word,” published in the Emily Dickinson Journal and collected in Bloom’s Modern Critical Views: Emily Dickinson, among others. Fagan is associate professor and Coordinator of Creative Writing and Literature in Person in the English, Literature, and World Languages Department at Ferris State University, where she teaches creative writing, composition, poetry, and American literature.
