Bennington Annotations Etc.

 

Jules Bennington graduation video clip - Bennington, VT January 13, 2007.  This will be forever in history because Liam is no longer on the planet and what was I thinking when I spaced out in getting my diploma?  www.youtube.com/watch

 

Select by title.  These are some of the annotations I wrote while I was working on my MFA at Bennington College, Vermont.   Mostly books of poetry, although there is some fiction/playwriting in here too. Not an all inclusive list, but a few for your browsing pleasure.
