Chard deNiord, newly appointed Poet Laureate of Vermont, regaled our November writing group with his stories about the late Ruth Stone. DeNiord read a number of her signature poems followed by several of his own poems inspired by her from his new book INTERSTATE (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2015)

His TED talk below resonates with some of our themes, in particular, Keats’ Negative Capability as a base.
