Annie Lighthart’s Lantern won the 2017 Wells College Press Chapbook Contest, beating out over 160 other entries for publication, and this reading is the official book release of Lantern! The author of one prior full-length poetry collection, Iron String, Annie's work has been read by Garrison Keillor on The Writer's Almanac, chosen by Naomi Shihab Nye for inclusion in the Poems for Patience project at Galway University Hospitals in Ireland, and nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Annie has lectured on re-thinking Emily Dickinson’s legend, as well as on translating Anglo-Saxon poetry, and currently teaches poetry workshops with Portland's Mountain Writers, Soapstone, and through Road Scholar programs.

Like all VWS events, this reading is free and open to the public.
