Listen to Sydney Lea on Vermont Public Radio

Vermont's new Poet Laureate, Newbury writer Sydney Lea has been described as "a man in the woods with his head full of books and a man in books with his head full of woods."

VPR's Jane Lindholm talks with Lea about his poetry, his new role, and how he plans to use it to promote poetry around the state, including visiting as many community libraries as will have him. Lea's latest collection of poems, from Four Way Books, is called Young of the Year.
