This summer New England Review held two group readings, featuring authors published in NER and alumni of Middlebury College: our annual Alumni & Faculty Reading at Middlebury College’s Reunion on June 9, and on July 16 in New York City, in a tribute event hosted by the Potomac Theatre Project. Coming up August 9, the summer edition of the NER Vermont Reading Series.
On June 9, a crowd of Middlebury alumni, faculty, and friends gathered in the Axinn Center for the annual New England Review Middlebury Reunion Reading. Faculty members Kathryn Kramer and Christopher Shaw, from the Department of English & American Literatures; Stephen Kiernan ’82; Alison McGhee ’82; Jason Tandon ’97; and Bruce Willard ’77, all read from their work.
