A Deluxe Edition to Benefit Media Education: The iconic radio station WRUV has been on the air since 1955, when it first began broadcasting out of its smoke-filled studio at the University of Vermont in Burlington. Over the years, programming has ranged from the conventional to the absurd, from pleasant to downright disturbing. This deluxe, all-color version of The WRUV Reader reflects this spirit in a selection of stories, poems, essays and drawings that could only have come together on this quirky college radio station. The collection showcases the work of guests featured since 2009 on Writers@WRUV, a weekly jamboree of Vermont authors, famous and obscure. They include Vermont state senator and novelist Philip Baruth, who re-imagines Burlington as a theme park dedicated to Phish, the local tripadelic band made big; Major Jackson, poetry editor of the Harvard Review, who chases after the freest poem in the world; and Tina Escaja, whose moving, Spanish-English poems of women and language reach into the ether through her smart-phone-scannable barcodes. Chris Evans, a.k.a. DJ Daddo, a journalist and fiction writer, started the reading series in 2009 to bring greater exposure to beginning and established Vermont writers. The show continues to air weekly on WRUV, with podcasts always available at wruvwriters.net. A NOTE ABOUT THIS DELUXE EDITION The goal of The WRUV Reader as envisioned was to share a good deal of writing from Vermont authors and to do it affordably. Afforability necessitated elminating color from the original edition. However, the wonderful portraits and beautiful artwork supplied for the book certainly begged for vibrancy, and therefore we produced this limited-run color version for your enjoyment. If you've paid for this version, you've donated even more to the cause of media education, which is a wonderful thing.
