ICYMI- You can watch An Evening of Poetry 2022 at this link. What a wonderful night it was!

Join us for An Evening of Poetry 2022 hosted by VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb, Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m.

As we slide into another year of uncertainty around the pandemic and world events, one way to find firm ground and inspiration is through poetry. For the second to last day of National Poetry Month, Mitch Wertlieb hosts a virtual event with four beloved Vermont poets.

The event will feature readings by poets Kerrin McCadden, Reuben Jackson, Rajnii Eddins and Bianca Stone, as well as discussion of their work and what inspires them. What better way to relax and reflect on a Friday night?

This event is generously sponsored by The Vermont Arts Council and The Vermont Book Shop.

The event is free to join, but we ask that you register to receive a link to view.
