In celebration of National Poetry Month on Wednesday, April 26th in the East Room (Withey) at 7 p.m. Terry Hauptman, poet and painter, will read from her newly published book of poetry, The Indwelling of Dissonance, published by North Star Press.
Terry is the author of three previous poetry collections: Masquerading in Clover: Fantasy of the Leafy Fool, with hand painted plates (Boston: Four Zoas, 1980), Rattle (Tulsa: Cardinal Press, 1982), and On Hearing Thunder (St. Cloud Minnesota: North Star Press, 2004). She holds an MFA in poetry from the University of New Mexico and a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Arts from Ohio University, Athens. She reads her poetry rhapsodically and exhibits her luminous Songline Scrolls nationally, recently showing her work in a gallery exhibition at the Southern Vermont Arts Center. She has taught art, poetry, and ethnopoetics, as well as courses on genocide, at several universities and workshops. She will teach a poetry workshop at GMC in Fall 2017. Books will be for sale at the reading and refreshments will be served. More information about Terry, as well as some images of her paintings, are available here: http://vermontartsliving.com/?
