Bill Thibodeau
Poet, Carpenter, Speaker, Teacher

Bill Thibodeau is the author of a collection of poetry: American Icon and Other Poems, featured at Grolier's Poetry Book Shop in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA.  He is a member of the Carpenter Poets of Jamaica Plain: a group of men and women who gather after work once a week at a local pub to share their poetry about their trade and other matters.


Bill, along with his fellow carpenter poets, has been featured on PBS, The Hallmark Channel, and in the Boston Globe.


As a carpenter, Bill is in demand around Boston's neighborhoods: The South End, Bay Village, Beacon Hill, and the Back Bay where historical accuracy and quality work are equally important.


Bill is out often performing his poetry at readings, book events, cable TV shows, and open mikes in the Boston area. He has been interviewed on Boston Cable and Hopkinton Cable and has featured in many area open mics, including Emerson Umbrella, Wake Up and Smell the Poetry and The Center for the Arts in Natick. His influences include Yeats, Williams, Neruda, Ginsberg and Eliot.


Bill's poetry collection is part of the senior class curriculum at North Quincy High School, where he conducts a series of poetry workshops.
