New England Review Reading Series
July 25 , 2011—Middlebury, VT—The New England Review is pleased to announce the second event in the NER Vermont Reading Series. On August 3, at 7 pm, four Vermont writers—David Huddle, Gary Margolis, Janice Obuchowski, and Angela Patten—will read from their work at Carol's Hungry Mind Cafe in Middlebury.
David Huddle (Burlington) is the author of three novels, including Nothing Can Make Me Do This, and seven books of poetry, including Black Snake at the Family Reunion.
Gary Margolis (Cornwall) is the author of the poetry collections Below the Falls and Fire in the Orchard, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
Janice Obuchowski (Shelburne) was born and raised in Vermont. She earned an MFA in fiction from the University of California, Irvine, and is currently at work on a novel.
Angela Patten (Jonesville) is the author of two poetry collections, Reliquaries and Still Listening. She teaches literature and creative writing at the University of Vermont.
Sponsored by the New England Review, with support from the Vermont Book Shop, the NER Vermont Reading Series provides an opportunity for Vermont writers to read their work in front of an audience, and to acquaint local audiences with the talented writers who live and work among us. The series presents not only authors who’ve published in the New England Review and elsewhere, but also those just starting out, who may be unpublished and reading their work for the first time.
That Vermont is home to more writers per capita than any other state in the nation is a testament not only to the natural beauty of our surroundings and the possibilities for solitude and contemplation, but also to the great traditions and institutions that support our literary artists when the time comes to share their work. Published by Middlebury College since 1987, New England Review is proud of its own tradition of advancing the literary arts, bringing both new and known writers to a national reading public, and endeavors through the NER Vermont Reading Series to help bring about a similar convergence of voices here in our home state.
