Poet, Former NPR Commentator David Budbill to Give Reading
The campus community is invited to an evening of "Poetry, Music, and Politics" with writer David Budbill at Green Mountain College on Thursday, April 26, at 7 p.m. in The Gorge of Withey Hall. Budbill is author of seven books of poems, eight plays, a novel, a collection of short stories, a picture book for children, dozens of essays, introductions, speeches and book reviews, the libretto for an opera and is a performance poet on two CDs. He was for a time a commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered and his poems are frequently read by Garrison Keillor on the NPR feature, The Writer's Almanac.

Budbill tours occasionally with avant-garde bassist and composer, William Parker and drummer Hamid Drake. In 2003 the three released, Songs for a Suffering World: A Prayer for Peace, a Protest Against War. William Parker and Budbill also released in 1999, Zen Mountains-Zen Streets: A Duet for Poet and Improvised Bass, a two-CD set of a live performance which is available on the Boxholder Records label.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Prof. Laird Christensen at 802-287-8344.
