Norwich University’s Spring 2014 Writers Series features acclaimed poet and playwright David Budbill, a Vermonter who lives and writes from the Northeast Kingdom.

Budbill is the author of seven books of poems, including Happy Life, released by Copper Canyon Press in 2011. His works also include eight plays, a novel, a collection of short stories and a picture book for children. His honors include a National Endowment for the Arts Play Writing Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award for Fiction, and the Vermont Arts Council Walter Cerf Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.

The event begins with a short reading of Budbill’s acclaimed play Judevine by the Norwich Pegasus Players at 7 p.m. in Milano Ballroom.

This reading continues the 2014 Writers Series, presented by the College of Liberal Arts and the Department of English and Communications. All events in this series are free and open to the public. Books will be available for sale, and a signing will follow the reading.
