Back Roads Readings

Readings take place at the Brownington Congregational Church unless otherwise noted.  The intent of the series is to bring regional and national writers and poets to audiences in the Northeast Kingdom and Eastern Townships so people have the chance to hear authors read their work and to meet them personally. After each reading everyone is invited to a reception and book signing at the Samuel Read Hall House to share refreshments and conversation with the writers.
