Vermont Book Award Gala

We held our second Vermont Book Award Gala on September 24, 2016, announcing the 2016 winner—Major Jackson for his poetry collection Roll Deep.


The Vermont Book Award is a new prize created to honor artists with deep connections to the state of Vermont and to draw attention to a state so uniquely suited for creative enterprise. We hope you enjoy this selection of images from the 2016 Gala and will join us for the 2017 event!
