We were thrilled to welcome James Crews to Middlebury on September 5. He is the editor of the best-selling anthologies, The Path to Kindness and How to Love the World, which has been featured on NPR's Morning Edition, in the Boston Globe, and the Washington Post Crews' own poems have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Ploughshares, The New Republic, and The Christian Century. He collaborated with former US poet laureate Ted Kooser on "American Life in Poetry," which reaches millions of readers across the world. Crews holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a PhD in writing and literature from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He teaches poetry at the University at Albany and lives with his husband in Shaftsbury, Vermont.
