The museum held a very successful presentation last Saturday (11/18) with Jonathan Cohen presenting on the “Centennial Edition — AL QUE QUIERE!”

There was a small but intimate audience for Jonathan’s 45-minute Power Point on William Carlos Williams notable 1917 book of poems. This book of poems became sought after by writers and poets just as literary scholars had looked to Walt Whitman’s iconic “Leaves of Grass” for inspiration, Cohen said.

In the audience were people from surrounding communities of Nutley and Secaucus. An enthusiatic audience included Stephen W. Hahn, PhD, professor in the Department of English, William Paterson University, and Jim Klein and Zorida Mohammed of the Red Wheelbarrow Poets.Rod Leith, the Rutherford Borough Historian, introduced Cohen, who is of the teaching staff of the State University of New York, Stony Brook Campus and is an award winning translator of Latin American poetry.

Following a book signing sesion, Leith presented Cohen with a copy of the Rutherford Historic Preservation Committee’s Historic Commemorative ornament of William Carlos Williams 9 Ridge Road.
The afternoon’s program kept with tradition with Zorida Mohammed presenting Cohen with a bouquet of her lucious Amorello flowers.
