Roads Taken:Contemporary VT Poetry

Join Editors Sydney Lea, Vermont’s 2011-2015 Poet Laureate, and Chard deNiord, Vermont’s current Poet Laureate, on Wednesday, May 24 at 7:00 pm at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier for the book launch of their new anthology, Roads Taken: Contemporary Vermont Poetry (Green Writers Press, May 2017).  This anthology of contemporary Vermont poets represents a wide range of accomplished voices―both young and old, both renowned and relatively unestablished. While there is no such thing as a particular brand of Vermont poetry, the poems in this volume claim Vermont as their place of origin, bearing witness to the remarkably rich and ongoing legacy of the state’s poetic tradition.

We know that Kerrin McCadden, Alison Prine and Geof Hewitt will read their poems from the book and we’re waiting to hear from more of the poets whose words grace this book.
