NER Vermont Reading Series: January 31, 2013

CarolsrainbowOn Thursday, January 31, 7 p.m., at Carol’s Hungry Mind Cafe in Middlebury, four writers will read from their work as part of the NER Vermont Reading Series: Eileen Brunetto, Jon Mathewson, Julia Shipley, and Jacob White.

Eileen Brunetto (Cornwall) received her MFA in writing at Goddard College and leads memoir workshops in the Middlebury area. Her work has been published in Pitkin Review, The MacGuffin, and various online venues.

Jon Mathewson (Middletown Springs), has been published in dozens of small-press journals. His poetry collection, While Strangers Insult the Decor, was published by Foothills in 2011.

Julia Shipley (Northeast Kingdom) is the author of Herd (Sheltering Pines Press, 2010) and Planet Jr. (Flyway/Iowa State, 2012), and is the recipient of grants from the Vermont Community Foundation and the Vermont Arts Council.

Jacob White (Johnson) teaches at Johnson State College, where he edits Green Mountains Review. His collection of short stories, Being Dead in South Carolina, comes out later this year.

This event is free and open to the public. Carol’s is located at 24 Merchants Row in Middlebury.

Sponsored by New England Review, with support from Carol’s Hungry Mind Cafe, the Vermont Book Shop, and Middlebury Community TV, the NER Vermont Reading Series provides an opportunity for Vermont writers to read their work in front of an audience, and to acquaint local audiences with the talented writers who live and work among us.
