Los Lorcas: Poetry in Performance
Readings by Partridge Boswell and Peter Money; Music by Whit Van Meter
Thursday, April 30, 7:00pm
Free

Longtime collaborators on and off the page, Partridge Boswell of Woodstock, VT and Peter Money of Brownsville, VT will perform selections from their award-winning collections as well as new work. Their readings will be accompanied by the music of guitarist Whit Van Meter.

Although the two poets have worked together for years— Boswell as managing editor and Money as founding director of Harbor Mountain Press—their appearance on the AVA stage will be a rare joint reading of their respective poems.

Boswell’s book of poems, Some Far Country, received the 2013 Grolier Discovery Award. His work has recently appeared in a number of publications, including The American Poetry Review; it has also been aired on Vermont Public Radio. He is a co-founder of Bookstock: The Green Mountain Festival of Words and was previously the director of arts organizations in New Hampshire and Vermont. Boswell frequently integrates various artistic disciplines with his appearances. In 2008, he gave a reading at AVA from his series of poems In Hindsight, A Happy Accident, with linocuts by AVA artist and faculty member Josh Yunger as the backdrop.

Peter Money’s books of poetry are numerous and include the poetry/music collaboration Blue Square (2007); he has also collaborated with the cartoonist Rick Veitch in “Bear Panel/Top Down.”  His poems have appeared in many publications, including the City Light’s anthology Days I Moved Through Ordinary Sounds; they have also been aired on Garrison Keillor’s “The Writer’s Almanac.” A student of Allen Ginsberg, Money has taught at Lebanon College and at the Center for Cartoon Studies.

Guitarist Whit Van Meter is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and Vermont College of Fine Arts.

The performance will be followed by a book signing and reception.
