Marie Howe, Sydney Lea

by The Staff on September 12, 2013


Here, poetry devotees, is not something you see every day. The New York State Writers Institute continues to roll out its visiting writer series with readings from a pair of top poets from adjoining states: official New York State Poet Marie Howe (pictured) and Vermont’s Poet Laureate, Sydney Lea.

Howe, a Rochester native and author of three volumes of poetry, will be the “official” poet through 2014. Lea, founder of the New England Review, will be Vermont’s chief poet through 2014, also. The two will take the stage of the New York State Museum’s Huxley Theater on Tuesday.

The New York State Writers Institute will present Marie Howe and Sydney Lea on Tuesday (Sept. 17) at 8 PM at the New York State Museum (Empire State Plaza, Albany). Admission is free. For more info, call the Writers Institute at 474-5877.
