Gary Margolis will be at the Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough on Saturday at 2 p.m. to read and discuss his poetry and sign his recent book, Raking The Winter Leaves: New And Selected Poems.

Thomas Moore, author of Care Of The Soul, writes of the poet, “I hope this sweep over a lifetime of words will show the world that Gary Margolis is a distinctively American poet to be celebrated and honored as one of the classics.”

Margolis is executive director emeritus of College Mental Health Services at Middlebury College, where he was also a part-time associate professor of English and American literatures. A recipient of Vermont Arts Council and Millay Colony Awards, and a Robert Frost Fellow at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, Margolis’s poems and essays have appeared in Poetry, American Scholar, Poetry Northwest, and the Journal of the American College Health Association. He lives in Cornwall, Vt.
