Scudder Parker Poetry Reading & Book Launch

Join us for a virtual Zoom poetry reading to celebrate the launch of Scudder H. Parker's debut book of poetry, Safe as Lightning!

“Anyone reading Scudder’s poems knows how special it feels to be home in Vermont. One can read and re-read them and feel the comfort of home.” —U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy

“Scudder Parker’s poems have a Vermont flavor. He describes the world he lives in and adds his personal philosophy. The poems allow us to see nature in a different light, and reflect on the meaning of life.” —Governor Madeleine M. Kunin, author of Coming of Age, My Journey to the Eighties

Scudder H. Parker grew up on a family farm in North Danville, Vermont. He’s been a Protestant minister, state senator, utility regulator, candidate for Governor, consultant on energy efficiency and renewable energy, and is settling into his ongoing work as a poet. "Safe as Lightning" is his first full-length collection.
