About Newburyport
Local information about Newburyport, MA and the businesses that call Newburyport home including the local restaurants, real estate agents, hotels, antique shops and tourist attractions. Newburyport is on of the smallest cities in the state of Massachusetts, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful oceanside community!

The city has a strong tourist industry including a favorite destination for art lovers. Here you will find a most charming and large downtown area full of art galleries, specialty shops, historic B&B's, and terrific restaurants.

Newburyport is home to many large and gracious Federalist homes that were built by fortunes acquired by whaling and clipper ship owners living during the 19th century. Don't forget to visit Plum Island, an oceanfront wildlife refuge which also contains lovely beachfront and adorable summer homes and cottages.

Newburyport is very proud of its history and justifiably so, Newburyport staged the first tea party in opposition to England's tax on tea and it was well before the more famous one in Boston Mass. Newburyport is also proud to be the birth place of the United States Coast Guard since the first ship commissioned for the Coast guard was built here and named the frigate Massachusetts.

In the early 1960's, Newburyport used state and federal funds to launch a massive redevelopment scheme to reclaim its historic neighborhoods made of granite, cobblestones and to update their utilities such as water and sewer. At the same time in order to prepare for a profitable present and future, Newburyport built an industrial park which now houses many diversified small industries.

Many residents commute daily to Boston via Route 95 and on the commuter rail. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, but they are just as proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring. So come to Newburyport and experience the history, beauty and hospitality!

An Evening of Poetry with Robert Pinsky and Kirun Kapur

Join us for a very special evening of poetry with former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky and Kirun Kapur as we celebrate the launch of her award-winning debut collection, "Visiting Indira Gandhi's Palmist."  We'll gather in the warmth and intimacy of the newly restored St. Anna's Chapel, part of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, at 166 High Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Due to overwhelming demand for this free program, we ask that you reserve a seat. We are pleased to offer free general admission tickets as well as a special ticket for $17, which includes a signed copy of Kirun Kapur's book and reserved seating. Both Robert's and Kirun's books will also be available for purchase after the reading.  

About Robert Pinsky

Robert Pinsky is one of America’s foremost poet-critics. Often called the last of the “civic” or public poets, Pinsky’s criticism and verse reflect his concern for a contemporary poetic diction that nonetheless speaks of a wider experience. Elected Poet Laureate of the United States in 1997, his tenure was marked by ambitious efforts to prove the power of poetry—not just as an intellectual pursuit in the ivory tower, but as a meaningful and integral part of American life.

About Kirun Kapur

Kirun Kapur grew up in Hawaii and has since lived and worked in North America and South Asia. Her first job as a writer was for India’s groundbreaking feminist magazine Manushi and from there her travels took her through Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. Stateside, her work has appeared in AGNI, Poetry International, FIELD, The Beloit Poetry Journal, Crab Orchard Review, Massachusetts Review, The Christian Science Monitor and many other journals and news outlets. She has taught creative writing at Boston University and through the Harvard Extension program and has been awarded fellowships from The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Vermont Studio Center and McDowell Colony. Her work was awarded the 2012 Arts & Letters/Rumi Prize for Poetry.

Kirun is the Poetry Editor for The Drum Literary Magazine, which publishes short fiction, poetry, essays, novel excerpts, and interviews exclusively in audio form.

Kirun's first book, Visiting Indira Gandhi's Palmist, was awarded the 2013 Antivenom Poetry Award and is forthcoming from Elixir Press.

Santa's Workshop
When: Dec 20, 2014 10 AM in Newburyport, Massachusetts (Sat, 20 Dec 2014 10 )
Susan Levine
Singer-songwriter Susan Levine draws inspiration from a life full of contrasts. She has been an itinerant performer, a student at Harvard, an actress in New York, a waitress in Santa Fe, a music therapist, and most recently, a mother. Her songs chronicle the emotional and physical landscapes of the in-between – the haves and have-nots, the loved and the abandoned, the sad but hopeful. A finalist in the 2008 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition, a 2008 Tri-Centric Showcase Artist at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, and a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition, the 2004 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, the 2004 Rose Garden Coffeehouse Performing Songwriter Competition, and the 2002 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Competition, she is described by Marilyn Rea Beyer (WUMB Folk Radio) as ?®? smart writer with a warm voice that can send chills down your spine.” Susan's songs are unique and memorable blends of folk, pop, Americana and country, suffused with poetic vision and sung with a distinctive voice described by Richard Fox, of WCUW FM, as "flowing and expressive, powerful yet capable of wrapping you up with warmth and tenderness." This voice, completely her own, yet often likened in its range and flexibility to Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Nanci Griffith, causes audiences to take notice; the poetry and heart in her lyrics, and the emotional investment in her performances cause audiences to really listen and come back for more. Susan's 2nd cd, Atlas (2007), produced and recorded by Tom Eaton at Thomas Eaton Recording, Newburyport, MA, was lauded by the Boston Herald: "Introspective, melodic folk-pop simply doesn? get much finer than the new CD by Newburyport?-? Levine. That rare album where a whole mind and heart is revealed."

The Diary of Anne Frank
Based on the book, Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, this play was first produced on Broadway in 1955. The Diary of Anne Frank won the Tony Award for Best Play that year and in1956 it earned Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The story is based on Anne Frank's diary entries made throughout the two years she and her family spent hiding in an annex building of her father's business during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands. In her own words Anne reminds us what our deepest and best capacities are. Her observations within the microcosm of captivity reveal the terrible stresses of war. Ultimately her story shows us, in specific detail, the vital aspects of life and qualities of humanity that are at risk when humankind wages war against itself. Experiencing the characters' struggles to adjust to austere living conditions, one can't help but think of the children alive today who are living as refugees of war. Anne's childlike bluntness and soulful maturity remind us of the huge loss that war inflicts on all humanity. She speaks to us from the grave of what might have been January 11, Post Show Discussion with Judith Thompson All are welcome. Judith is founder and director of the organization, Children of War, working with young people in twenty countries around the world. Her work has earned her the Peace Fellowship at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies. For the past decade she has convened peace builders, activists and academics in learning communities to explore the front lines of social healing such as restorative justice, forgiveness and trauma healing. She has a Ph.D. in peace studies and focused her research on how compassion arises in the process of social healing.

Tom "Satch"Kerans
Tom “Satch” Kerans, the 2009 runner-up in the 92.5 The River Rising Star contest is a singer, songwriter and guitarist drawing on such influences as Tom Petty, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Barry and The Remains. The founder and front man of the Boston based band the Catalinas, he has opened shows for many national acts including Little Steven Van Zandt, NRBQ, Charlie Sexton and South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. In fact, Kerans opened a show for Roy Orbison four days before the legendary singer’s untimely death. Kerans has steadily garnered national and local press; David Mead, in the September October (2009) issue of American Songwriter, declared “Satch Kerans is doing his damndest to preserve what seems to have always worked: stories about people in conflict set to familiar melodies and arrangements... Kerans doesn’t stray too far from any previously beaten paths, but a certain authenticity in his delivery makes you like him for it all the more. You really wouldn’t want him to be any other way”. In a recent feature story that ran in the Boston Globe music critic Jonathan Perry wrote, “years after settling into an entirely different identity and new set of priorities - reemerges with some of the best songs he's ever written... nodded in sound and temperament to his longtime heroes Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan, as well as ex-Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn and Mark Knopfler. At the collection's core was a clutch of sturdy melodies and classic pop structures”. Kerans, who has garnered extensive airplay on Boston radio stations including WXRV (The River) WAAF and WUMB. is currently working on his fifth solo CD. Catch him at a venue near you!

Wild Maple
This excellent duo features Gary Dolinsky on guitar and Trish DeCaprio on violin. Both sing, trading off lead vocals and joining for sensational harmonies. Gary's a flatpicking guitar whiz, and Trish is an expressive violinist, both flexible and incisive. The result is an appealing polished sound. Their set list included a number of excellent originals, with some pleasing covers as well. I liked their version of the Beatles' "I Will", with a contrapuntal byplay of guitar runs and pizzicato violin figures. Great fun. A minute later they had me tearing up with a plaintive ballad, then tappint goes along with a twangy number. Make no mistake, these folks are good. We'll try to get them back, I promise! -David Keevil, Acoustic Showcase Lexington, MA
