Ann B. Day

Ann B. Day grew up in suburban Massachusetts, which was very rural in the early 1930s. Her love of writing started in the first grade and has continued into her 80s. She married Frank Day from a banker family in 1950. They bought a farm in the Mad River Valley, Vermont, had two children, raised sheep, horses, Highland cattle, and took in guests from all over the world. Many of her poems reflect this life on the farm. Over the years she continued writing nature columns and books, poetry journals, and was president of the Vermont Poetry Society. Ann moved from Vermont to Peterborough, New Hampshire in 2013 where she belongs to the Monadnock Writers’ Group and the Poetry Society of New Hampshire.
