Weekend planner — Reading
After graduating from Boston University in 1968, Verandah Porche and some friends founded a commune in southern Vermont called Total Loss Farm. Forty-five years later she still lives there, “making a living stringing words together,” as she puts it. Porche’s poetry and prose have appeared in Ms., The Atlantic, The Village Voice and The New Boston Review, among others. She travels frequently to conduct writing workshops in “elementary schools, nursing homes, day care centers, grange halls, garages, basements, homes, mansions, jails and colleges.”
On Monday Porche will be at Hungry Ghost Bread in Northampton to help the bakery celebrate its 9th anniversary with a reading from her latest collection, “Sudden Eden.” Things get going at 6 p.m. with a serving of tapas. “Come join words and wheat together with us, for free!”
Hungry Ghost Bread is at 62 State St. in Northampton.
