Back Roads Readings: Major Jackson & Ellen McCulloch-Lovell

When: Sun., July 10, 3 p.m. 2016

Back Roads Readings was founded in 2013. The off-the-beaten-trail series, based in the tiny town of Brownington in Orleans County, aims to bring polished poets to the Northeast Kingdom. This year’s lineup opens with Major Jackson and Ellen McCulloch-Lovell. Jackson, a professor at the University of Vermont with four collections under his belt, is a familiar name in the poetry circuit. But McCulloch-Lovell, the first female president of Marlboro College and a former staffer to Hillary Clinton, published her first book of poems in 2010. Make the trek north to hear both wordsmiths on Sunday, then stick around for refreshments and a signing.

Price: Free.
