The Poetry Of Major Jackson

Nov 11, 2015

Major Jackson's new collection of poetry, "Roll Deep," takes you on a voyage from Philadelphia, to the Greek Islands, to civil war in Africa. His poems are introspective and have a lyrical sensibility.

We speak with Vermont poet and UVM Professor Major Jackson about his new book of poetry and about what has drawn him to this form of writing.

Also on the program, the Visiting Nurses Association of Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties conducted an intensive 6-month study of hospice use in Vermont. Christine Wernecke, VP of Business Development and Marketing at the VNA, managed the study and discusses the results.

Plus, from Rumble Strip Vermont, a podcast that features personal stories and interviews from around the state, we hear about a St. Johnsbury barber who served in Vietnam.
