Vermont writer and poet David Budbill will join us at Hotel Vermont on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. for a reading and Q&A about his work, the writing process, the publishing industry, and anything else that’s on your active, creative mind. RSVP today! Budbill is a legend in Vermont’s literary scene. He’s perhaps best known for Judevine, a stunning portrait of life in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, filled with characters who love so much it hurts. A few years ago, I interviewed David about his collection of poems, Happy Life, on Vermont Public Radio. In our conversation, we talk about how he rebelled against the conventional wisdom that poets are supposed to be dark and gloomy. The whole interview, which includes samples of his poetry, is available here. David Budbill’s poetry also appears regularly on The Writers Almanac. You can listen to his poems here. “An Evening With David Budbill” would not be possible without the generous support of Hotel Vermont and the League of Vermont Writers. We hope to see you there!
