The Highland Lodge needs a minimum of 20 registrants for “all meals and events” in order to cover the costs of hosting this special weekend event.

With speakers, discussions and events, the Highland Lodge in Greensboro, Vermont will host its second annual literary weekend inspired by the life and writings of former Greensboro resident, Wallace Stegner, from Friday, September 24 through Sunday, September 26. Distinguished guest speakers include Natalie Kinsey Warnock, author  of multiple children’s and young adult books including the Vermont Humanities Council 2006 “Vermont Reads” selection  As Long As There Are Mountains; Leland Kinsey, Northeast Kingdom poet  whose poems have been featured on Garrison Keillor’s  The Writer’s Almanac; Charlie Morrissey, author, editor,  oral history expert and former director of the Vermont Historical Society; and Jay Craven, acclaimed filmmaker, film professor, screen writer and founder of Catamount Arts and co-founder of Kingdom County Productions. Though the durable power of his writing won Stegner the Pulitzer Prize in 1972, his genius in crafting compelling characters and stories of place won him a dedicated audience. “Sense of Place” is a theme that links this great American Artist with the artists invited to present at the Highland Lodge weekend. All are rooted in and inspired by the place of the Northeast Kingdom.
