Saturday, July 13th–Poetry Chapbook Release and Reading

This Saturday! Poetry Chapbook Release with Reading
Saturday, July 13th at 1pm

In 2019, Putney Public Library began to assemble a chapbook of poetry by writers with creative ties to Vermont. While the project was unexpectedly delayed by Covid, the chapbook is now complete and ready to be released into the world! The book, appropriately titled Time Capsule, was hand bound in community workshops with marbled endpapers and a beautiful letterpress cover.
The contributing poets are Emma Paris, Michelle Blake, Dede Cummings, Candace Jensen, Ben Pease, Bianca Stone (Current Vermont Poet Laureate), Chard deNiord (Past Vermont Poet Laureate), Em Peake, Nancy Storrow, Rita Banerjee, Robin Myers, Kate Gleason, Amanda Galvan Huynh, Claire Gieringer, Mary Ruefle (Past Vermont Poet Laureate), Didi Jackson, Major Jackson, and Megan Buchanan.
Join us for the second reading with the contributing poets as they read past and new work on Saturday, July 13th at 1pm at Putney Public Library. Chapbooks will be sold as a fundraiser for the Putney Public Library at $50 each, payable by cash or check. Chapbooks will also be offered to each library in Windham County for their circulating collections and a digital file of the book will be available to view or download at the Putney Public Library website.
Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main St. in Putney, VT. These programs are free and open to the public.
