Local poet and community volunteer Karen M. Kline was the founding member of North Andover's poet laureate program and served as the town's third laureate, from 2012-2016, continuing  the 360-year-long poetic legacy of Anne Bradstreet.


As we honor this woman, we harvest our heritage.

Karen presents school workshops based on art, literature, media, music and more. She also counsels parents about how to encourage children to embrace writing (especially poetry), art and history.

She has worked with the Museum of Printing, North Andover Schools, the Robert Frost Foundation, the Mass. Poetry Foundation, the Essex Heritage Foundation, Essex Chamber Music Players, Merrimack College and others since 1995.
