314 Franklin

  • A Memoir in Verse

    Hugh Hennedy

    In his chapbook, 314 Franklin, Hugh Hennedy, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, leads readers on a serpentine tour of his early days, and the people that fashioned him into a life of poetry, just as his blacksmith grandfather forged horseshoes. 

    This poem, like those in Hennedy’s Variations on a Natural Theme (also available through Hobblebush Books), will appeal to those who love poetry’s ability to evoke place, people, and time, and then move beyond them. Truly “A Memoir in Verse,” 314 Franklin is a tribute to both the small and the big things in life, and the power of poetry to transform them.
