On April 6 at 7:00 pm at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, poet and novelist David Huddle will read his work, and discuss the divide between, in his words, “real poems versus made-up poems. Is one better than the other, and do we always know the difference?”
David Huddle is from Ivanhoe, Virginia, and he taught at the University of Vermont for 38 years. His fiction, poetry, and essays have appeared in The American Scholar, Esquire, The New Yorker, Harper’s, and Green Mountains Review. In 2012 his novel Nothing Can Make Me Do This won the Library of Virginia Award for Fiction, and his collection Black Snake at the Family Reunion won the 2013 Pen New England Award for Poetry. His most recent book is a collection of poems, Dream Sender, published in September 2015 by LSU Press.
