Poet and UVM Professor Major Jackson comes to Vermont via Philadelphia. His first poetry collection, Leaving Saturn, was a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award. Jackson has just published a second volume, entitled Hoops, a series of loosely related observations on life in contemporary times, published by Norton Books.
Major Jackson lives in South Burlington, and joined Neal Charnoff in our Colchester studios.
Jackson will be giving a reading at the University of Vermont Thursday, April 13 at 4:30. For more information on Jackson’s Vermont appearances, visit his website at www.majorjackson.com .
