Join us for a release party with poet Daniel Lusk!
The latest collaboration between Vermont poet Daniel Lusk and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum has produced the audio book Inland Sea: Reflections. “The Inland Sea,” an old name for the broad lake east of the Champlain Islands, evokes the connection the poet hopes to make between what lies beneath the waters, and our inner selves. In the audio book, Lusk reads 19 recent poems inspired by more than two years of research, interviews with divers, exploring the discoveries of archaeologists, marine biologists, geologists, historians and folklorists – and his own experiences on the lake in all weather.
Daniel Lusk is also the author of Lake Studies: Meditations on Lake Champlain, Kissing the Ground: New & Selected Poems, and other books. Winner of a Pablo Neruda Prize for poetry from Nimrod International Journal, his poems have appeared in Poetry, New Letters, Prairie Schooner, The Iowa Review, American Poetry Review, North American Review, and many other journals. A Senior Lecturer of English Emeritus at the University of Vermont, he lives near the lake with his wife, poet and teacher Angela Patten.
