The third in our series of exhibitions in honor of Louisa Solano, former owner of the Grolier Poetry Book Shop and patron of the poetry community, features signed first editions and ephemera from Frank Bidart, who is reading at the Main Library on Tuesday, December 3rd at 6:30 p.m.
One of America’s most well-known poets, Frank Bidart has published nine books of poetry, including Metaphysical Dog: Poems, which is this year’s finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry. Bidart has received numerous awards, including Yale University’s prestigious Bollingen Prize in 2007, and is a professor of English at Wellesley College.
Ms. Solano has made a significant donation to the Cambridge Room, including a substantial collection of signed first editions from members of the Cambridge poetry community as well as material related to the Grolier Poetry Book Shop. The Grolier, founded in 1927, is the oldest continuously run bookstore devoted to selling poetry and poetry criticism. Many of the signed editions donated to the Cambridge Room read, “Louisa, in gratitude and admiration.” These inscriptions are a testament to Solano’s lifelong support of poets and show her impact on the poetry community.
