    Celebrate National Poetry Month with Vermont poets Dede Cummings, Megan Buchanan, and James Crews.

    ABOUT TO LOOK OUT FROM AND DEDE CUMMINGS:

    "In To Look Out From, Dede Cummings takes good advantage of the imaginative fluidity that poetry offers. Even her poems of memory and family are driven by curiosity and enlivened by quick maneuvers and spritely turns. And she is careful never to leave the reader behind." - Billy Collins

    Join Bill Mares and Todd Haire for a talk on their new book, Making Beer.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  To have your own brewery is the dream of almost every home brewer. Bill Mares was one of those, but he had to wait 40 years to meet and join up with Todd Haire, a real brewer, for this dream to become real. This book takes brewing full circle from Bill the amateur, making inadvertently wild beers, to Todd the professional, brewing first-class mixed-culture wild and funky beers in oak barrels, using mixed-culture fermentation. Together, they offer a delightful journey through the craft-brewing revolution of the last four decades.

    Join Eve Schaub to tackle the issue of clutter and our complicated yearning to hold on to things.

Eve Schaub's new memoir is the tale of how one woman organized an entire room in her house that had been overtaken by pointless items. It's also a deeply inspiring and frequently hilarious examination of why we keep stuff in the first place - and how to let it all go.
