David Budbill

David Budbill (1940-2016) was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to a streetcar driver and a minister's daughter.  He was the author of nine books of poems, nine plays, a novel, a collection of short stories, a picture book for children, and dozens of essays, introductions, speeches, and book reviews.  He also produced two CDs, Zen Mountains/Zen Streets and Songs for a Suffering World with The Judevine Mountain Trio. Garrison Keillor frequently reads  David's poems on The Writer's Almanac. His prizes and honors included an Honorary Doctorate from New England College, a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in playwriting, and a Guggenheim Fellowship in poetry. He lived for forty years in the mountains of northern Vermont where he loved cutting firewood, tending a large garden, and paying fierce attention to the world.
