Sanctuary, Vermont: A Reading with Laura Budofsky Wisniewsk (Online Event)

May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sanctuary, Vermont, the winner of the 2020 Orison Poetry Prize by Katie Ford, gives voice to present, past, and future residents of a richly imagined Vermont town. Laura Budofsky Wisniewski joins the lineage of Edgar Lee Masters, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Louise Glück in inhabiting and valorizing the extraordinary inner lives of everyday people. These townspeople endure hardships and loneliness, suffer injustice and racism, but still find moments of solace, beauty, and communion.

Join Addison County libraries and Laura Budofsky Wisniewski, as we listen to a reading from Sanctuary, Vermont and discuss the poet’s work and inspiration.
