Award-winning poets Daniel Lusk and Angela Patten read at Writers’ Barn

Monday evening The Writers’ Barn in Shelburne will open its doors to celebrate the written and spoken word with renowned local poets, Daniel Lusk and Angela Patten, as they read from past collections and current work. 

Irish-born Angela Patten received the prestigious Kroepsch Maurice Award for Exellence in Teaching in 2012, and she is the author of two poetry collections, “Reliquaries” and “Still Listening.” The poems collected in “Still Listening” focus on a childhood in America set to a background of Irish folklore.

Daniel Lusk is author of “Lake Studies: Meditations on Lake Champlain” and “Kissing the Ground: New & Selected Poems.” His weekly book reviews and commentaries have been broadcast by 160 affiliate stations of National Public Radio. In 2009, Lusk received an innovative research grant from the University of Vermont to work on a cycle of poems about Lake Champlain.

Both Lusk and Patten are Vermont Arts Council Juried Artists and members of the Poetry Society of America; both are listed in the national directory of Poets & Writers, Inc. and teach at the University of Vermont.
