American Poetry focuses on David Budbill’s collection of poems-of-place Judevine, set in the Northeast Kingdom.  David used to come to NEC for a few days in July/August to do a reading and workshop with our Summer Seminar students.  Several performances of the play Judevine have been performed at NEC.  David Budbill’s book Judevine is available on both Powell’s and Amazon.

Don Melander is a Senior Professor of Humanities, retired, at New England College where he taught mostly literature and writing for 45 years.  For the last decade he has served as dramaturge for the Open Door Theater.  He holds a Ph.D. in American Literature from Syracuse University; his dissertation is on the 20th-century American poet, Wallace Stevens.
