A book launch and reception for “River Arts Review: Voices from Northern Vermont – Volume 3” will be held Thursday, May 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. at River Arts in Morrisville. The event begins with an artist talk by Ann Young, whose exhibit is on display at the upstairs gallery, followed by a poetry reading. The collection presents a lush and eclectic blend of style and voices, containing 112 pages of poetry written by 11 local poet/writers/community members who attended a poetry clinic at the nonprofit arts center. Poets include Scott Boyd, Laura Brueckner, Peter Clark, Margaret Lee Ferry, Dominique Gustin, Joanne Harrison, Constant-Grace Stillwater, Ruth White, S. White and Martha Zweig.
