This group reading brings together four Vermont Poets whose poetic styles are as diverse as their life-styles. Three have been major contributors/organizers to some of Vermont’s and New England’s most important annual literary events: The Brattleboro Literary Festival, Bookstock, the Poetry Program for the Vermont’s Governor’s Institute on the Arts and the fourth was a former executive director of one the most important small poetry presses in New England, Alice James.
