WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

A Reading and Conversation about the work of Nobel Laureate, Tomas Tranströmer, with translator Patty Crane (in person at HVWC)

December 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free – $100.00

Please join Jennifer Franklin, Program Director, as she welcomes the translator of The Blue House: Complete Works of Tomas Tranströmer (Copper Canyon Press, 2023). This collection is the first American translation of the 2011 Nobel laureate’s complete works. His poetry, translated into dozens of languages, often speaks across cultures, generations and time itself.

Here’s some early praise for The Blue House:

“Incandescent. Crane’s translations feel as close to the original Swedish as one is likely to get. . . . This new gathering will draw readers into the poet’s grounded realm of both the familiar and the magical. . . . The Blue House will long be considered the definitive tome of Tranströmer’s work in English and should be on every poetry shelf.”—Raúl Niño, Booklist, STARRED review


This reading and discussion will be in person at HVWC. Please reserve your seat. Space is limited.
