Adirondack Poetry

"Beneath every stone hides a poem" an exhibition and bibliography of Adirondack poetry from 1845 – 2013 by St Lawrence University student Fellow Holly Brown ('14) was on display in the Special Collections Reading Room, Owen D. Young Library in the Fall 2013 semester. In the summer of 2013 senior Holly Brown took Dorothy Plums' famous 1958 Adirondack Bibliography (with updates in 1966 and 1992) and brought it up to date, recording every Adirondack poem she could document. Working with Special Collections Librarian Mark McMurray the result is a 400 plus title bibliography of poems within the Blue Line.

Additionally Holly selected 36 key Adirondack poems which are on exhibit. As an aspiring poet, Holly also worked with Assistant Professor Sarah Barber writing her own Adirondack inspired poems…
