In honor of National Poetry month, NHPR's Sean Hurley is introducing us to a New Hampshire poet every Friday. Today we hear from Jennifer Militello. The Goffstown native has recently published her second book of poetry - "Body Thesaurus."
While her relatives gathered for coffee in her grandmother's kitchen, 9 year old Jennifer Militello would sneak off into a back room to read aloud from the two books she found there. A heavy collection of Edgar Allen Poe and a slimmer volume of Emily Dickinson.
