BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls, Vt., assisted by New Hampshire author and poet Jim Fowler, will host second Saturday Open Mic July 14 at 1 p.m. This month we will be featuring a reading by Vermont Poet Laureate, Chard deNiord, followed by open mic. A selection of his books will be available for sale and autographing.
DeNiord is currently a professor of English at Providence College and the Poet Laureate of Vermont. He lives in Westminster West, Vt. with his wife, Liz. The open mic is held by having poets take turns reading from their works or a favorite book. The poets sit around a circle, so there is no need to be nervous about standing in front of a room for newbie poetry readers. Call 802-463-9404 for event reservations.
