shappell@herald-mail.com WASHINGTON COUNTY - Michael Glaser said he often is the first person to remind others that just because he is Maryland's current poet laureate that does not mean he is the best poet in the state. One could hardly come to that conclusion on Monday as a group of about 40 people at Hagerstown Community College hung on his every utterance and, aside from the occasional chuckle, made nearly none of their own. Glaser, who spoke at Kepler Theater, was chosen for the 17th Annual Kreykenbohm Lecture, a series dedicated to Helen Kreykenbohm, who began her long stint at the college as a teacher in 1946, said Terrie Angle, chair of the college's English and humanities department.

The title of Simone Le Ann Byrd's recent book of poetry, artwork and random thoughts, "It Would Be Wise Not to Ask for Lemons" is more than a poem, it's a suggestion. "I got the title at a restaurant I used to work at where nobody washed the lemons before putting them in people's water," Byrd said laughingly during a telephone interview. In fact, real life has inspired all of the poetry and random thoughts found nestled among the drawings by Byrd herself. The book, which is under her pen name of Simone Le Ann, has about 80 poems in the 100 pages.
