Syd Lea & W.D. Wetherell | An Evening of Poetry & Prose

wd wetherells leaSydney Lea and W. D. Wetherell, two accomplished local authors celebrate their lives in literature by reading from their latest works.

Sydney Lea and Fleda Brown, both nationally recognized writers and past poets laureate of their respective states have collaborated on Growing Old in Poetry, a book of essays. They've written on a wide variety of topics, some provocative, some silly, all personal.

Sydney Lea was Vermont's 2011-2015 Poet Laureate. He has published numerous books in multiple genres. He is the founder of New England Review and has taught at Dartmouth, Yale, Wesleyan, Vermont, and Middlebury colleges. His stories, poems, essays and criticism have appeared many periodicals, as well as in more than fifty anthologies.

Where We Live is master story-teller W. D. Wetherell's fifth story collection, and his first in ten years, bringing together the best of his recent fictions. The stories examine contemporary American life and culture by focusing on the forgotten places and people living on the edges, from a young Somali immigrant who finds an unlikely mentor in his attempt to come to terms with his new home, to a widower faced with the everyday challenges of his first day alone.

Walter Wetherell is the award-winning author of over twenty books. His work has been widely published. In addition to fiction, he writes frequently on writing, fly-fishing, and travel. 

All are welcome, reservations are not needed. Refreshements will be served.

The Norwich Bookstore will be on hand with books for purchase and signing.
