A Poem City Preview with Scudder Parker

Friday, March 15, 2019

Scudder describes himself as "a preacher who learned to give up preaching; a politician who decided it was OK not to get elected; a gardener who struggles to give away much of what grows; a parent and grandparent who hopes love will find the balance among teaching, being taught, and just being." He will read poems he has written on a range of topics, from gardening, to birding, to humor, to personal exploration, including aging. He wants to engage you in response and discussion of his work. Scudder's poems have appeared in a number of journals and most recently represented the "words" in "Birds, Words, and Notes" at North Branch Nature Center and Richmond Free Library. Scudder grew up on a family farm in North Danville, VT. His writing is the way he listens, sees, unearths connections, recognizes beauty, and lets truth touch him.
