A Memorial Celebration of David Budbill

When: Sun., June 25, 3 p.m. 2017

“David’s lyrical storytelling effortlessly transports the reader into his realm with a rare and poetic beauty,” wrote Green Writers Press publisher Dede Cummings in an October tribute to the late poet and playwright David Budbill. A longtime Vermont resident and prolific writer of poems, plays, short stories, novels and even a libretto, Budbill died in September at age 76. Now, friends, family and colleagues pay tribute to the man of words with a memorial celebration at Barre Opera House. Beginning and ending with the ringing of bowls, this free event features poems, theatrical scenes, photos and stories shared in honor of Budbill’s life and work.

Price: Free.
