UNH Professor Emeritus of English Tom Carnicelli has written a book of poems about his thoughts and feelings during the first few years of retirement. “Old Guy Part One: Getting Used to Old Age and Retirement” doesn’t take itself too seriously, says Carnicelli, though it does have its serious moments. Carnicelli taught English in various colleges for 53 years, 46 of them at the University of New Hampshire. He retired in 2013. He wrote poetry in his own college days and started writing it again after he retired. He tries to make his poems accessible to everyone, not just English majors.
“Old Guy Part One” is published by Piscataqua Press. It is available for purchase locally at RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth, NH, and online from major retailers.
