Thu, 28 Mar 2024 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT 

For our March event, in conversation with another Rhodes Scholar, Geza Tatrallyay (Ontario & St Catherine’s 1972) will focus mainly on his three memoirs, For the Children, The Expo Affair and The Fencers. All three books in this trilogy of narrative memoirs are true stories of escape attempts Geza was involved in during the Cold War. They are gripping tales of bravery and the will to survive and achieve a better life in a free country and are particularly relevant today with the brutal Russian aggression in Ukraine, and the similar plight of many Ukrainian refugee families.

Rabbit & Wolf Events

Poetry at The Front is this week, Thursday, 10/19 from 6:30-8pm. Our featured reader is Sarah Birgé and because our second reader cannot make it, I will be weaving in some selections and favorites throughout the evening. It’s going to be different than usual, come check it out!

rabbit&wolf will be at Another Way on Friday 11/10 from 5-6:30pm for an open mic that will coincide with their community dinner. This is open to the wider community and it’s really great to have folks come in and read that don’t normally spend any time there.

A Poetry Reading from Outer Space: 100 Poems

Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, St. Johnsbury, Vermont

October 7th at 7pm

Join us for a poetry reading with planetarium visuals:

Throughout human history, poetry has provided stories about what people observe in the sky. Stars, planets, comets, the moon, and space travel are used as metaphors for our feelings of love, loneliness, adventurousness, and awe. Editor Midge Goldberg and contributors Robert Crawford and Martin Elster will read from the anthology “Outer Space: 100 Poems,” published by Cambridge University Press, which includes poets, astronomers, and scientists from the 12th century BCE to today, from all around the world.

$15-25 cash/check suggested donation goes to the instructor.

Note that this is not a Poetry Society of Vermont event, but is organized by our friends at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium.
