BENNINGTON, Vt. -- Examining the interaction of the left brain and right brain in the making of poems, Vermont poet laureate Sydney Lea will deliver a lecture, "Poetry: Another Way of Knowing," on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 2:20 p.m., in the Everett Theatre at Southern Vermont College.
Part of the "Look Within, See Beyond: Stories of Empowerment and Change" lecture series, Lea’s talk will be free and open to the public. It will be followed by a reception and book signing with Lea, in the college’s Burgdorff Gallery.
Lea’s poetry collections include his most recent "Six Sundays Toward a Seventh: Selected Spiritual Poems" (Wipf and Stock) and, in 2011, "Young of the Year" (Four Way Books). A sample of his critical work spanning four decades, "A Hundred Himalayas," will soon be issued by the University of Michigan Press. In 2013, "A North Country Life: Tales of Woodsmen, Waters and Wildlife" (Skyhorse Publishing), a third volume of outdoor essays, will be published, to be followed by "I Was Thinking of Beauty" (Four Way Books).
