“The title of the late poet/critic Kenneth Koch’s essay on the work of Frank O’Hara — “All the Imagination Can Hold” — is also a perfect description of the poetry to be featured at this year’s annual Kensington Day of the Book Festival. Free verse, metered ruminations, youthful and seasoned voices… bring your imagination…your family…your friends… They will thank you!”Find out more »
