Ruth Stone Foundation (Traveling) Poetry Reading Series

Saturday, August 17, 3 – 5 PM
at Bundle, 60 Main, Middlebury, Vermont

We're thrilled to be hosting a poetry reading event at Bundle in Middlebury! We'll have three incredible visiting poets, books for sale from the Vermont Book Shop, and some light snacks. 

Join us!

ABOUT THE SERIES:

The RSF Reading Series is a free event featuring multiple poets, both emerging and established. As often as possible RSF will pair local authors with visiting writers and invite a student of the RSF Poetry Workshop to participate. Hosted by poets Bianca Stone and Ben Pease, these readings will offer a chance for out of state writers to engage with the local community, highlight exciting local voices, and give emerging writers a chance to share their work publicly.

ABOUT FEATURED POETS:

Cassandra de Alba is a poet living in Massachusetts.  Her chapbooks habitats (Horse Less Press, 2016) and ORB (Reality Hands, 2018) are about deer and the moon, respectively, and Ugly/Sad is forthcoming from Glass Poetry Press in 2020. She is a co-host at the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge, a poetry reader for IDK Magazine, and an associate editor at Pizza Pi Press.
