    Join us in welcoming local author Steven Bredice!  In his debut novel, Snap, cryptozoology meets horror when old friends on a fishing expedition attract the wrath of a giant snapping turtle.

    Explore the concept that “we come from life, and we are a conduit into other life,” with Bernd Heinrich - UVM Professor Emeritus of Biology and the author of Winter World, Summer World, and other popular nature books.

    When a good friend with a severe illness wrote, asking if he might have his "green burial" at Bernd Heinrich's hunting camp in Maine, it set the acclaimed biologist/author on a path that had long fascinated him. How exactly does the animal world deal with the flip side of the life cycle? And what are the lessons, ecological to spiritual, raised by a close look at how the animal world renews itself? Heinrich lends his wholly...

    Join us for a reading and booksigning with Nessa Flax, author of the new book Voices in the Hills.  This event is a wonderful opportunity to explore Vermont's culture and values.  As Bernie Sanders put it, "Any reader...will understand more about Vermont-who lives here, and what our values are, and why we love our state-after spending
    some time with Nessa’s writing."

    Nessa Flax, author of Voices in the Hills, though born a ‘flatlander’ has fully immersed herself in life in the North Country. She lives, loves, breathes and writes about it, in fact, she has become one of the locals.
