DAVID BUDBILL

David Budbill (June 13, 1940 – September 25, 2016) lived with his wife, the painter Lois Eby, in a house that they built many years ago in the hills of northern Vermont. Much of his writing reflects this natural setting.

Budbill’s poetry has been featured on NPR’s the Writer’s Almanac narrated by Garrison Keillor. His popular children’s book for ages 9-12, The Bones on Black Spruce Mountain, won the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award in 1979-1980. It has been re-released by Onion River Press and is available at Bear Pond Books. Happy Life is a popular book of his poetry (August 2011). In 2012 he published Park Songs, A Poem /Play that is an urban equivalent of his play Judevine.

His latest book, published postumously in December 2016, is Broken Wing (Green Writers Press). David Budbill worked closely with publisher Dede Cummings in order to finish the book before he died. The publisher enlisted local artist Donald Saaf who illustrated the pages with stunning black and white collages that bring the book to life. The book is appropriate for young adult readers and adults.
