101 Changemakers: Rebels & Radicals Who Changed US History (Burlington)

Join us for a discussion featuring editor Dao X. Tran, as well as readings by local changemakers Patrick Brown, Denise Dunbar, Reuben Jackson, and others.

In the great tradition of Howard Zinn, 101 Changemakers offers a “peoples’ history” version of the individuals who have shaped our country, specially designed for middle school students.

“For too many young people, history is just plain boring. History can seem like it is all about random dates and facts about powerful kings and important presidents making long-winded speeches. History should be exciting. It should be thrilling. It tells us the greatest stories ever told, and those stories contain lessons from the past that can help us create a better future. But we can only do that if we know who really made our history— and what exactly they did.”

Sponsored by Haymarket Books.  Party and fundraiser to follow at Caribbean Corner, 12 N. Winooski Avenue.

The Inland Sea: Release Party with Daniel Lusk (Burlington)

Join us for a release party with poet Daniel Lusk!

The latest collaboration between Vermont poet Daniel Lusk and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum has produced the audio book Inland Sea: Reflections. “The Inland Sea,” an old name for the broad lake east of the Champlain Islands, evokes the connection the poet hopes to make between what lies beneath the waters, and our inner selves. In the audio book, Lusk reads 19 recent poems inspired by more than two years of research, interviews with divers, exploring the discoveries of archaeologists, marine biologists, geologists, historians and folklorists – and his own experiences on the lake in all weather.

Daniel Lusk is also the author of Lake Studies: Meditations on Lake Champlain, Kissing the Ground: New & Selected Poems, and other books. Winner of a Pablo Neruda Prize for poetry from Nimrod International Journal, his poems have appeared in Poetry, New Letters, Prairie Schooner, The Iowa Review, American Poetry Review, North American Review, and many other journals. A Senior Lecturer of English Emeritus at the University of Vermont, he lives near the lake with his wife, poet and teacher Angela Patten.

Saved: How I quit worrying about money and became the richest guy in the world with Ben Hewitt (Burlington)

Join bestselling local author Ben Hewitt for a discussion of how he quit worrying about money and became the richest guy in the world.

When Ben Hewitt met Erik Gillard, he was amazed. Here was a real-life rebel living happily and comfortably in small-town Vermont on less than $10,000 per year. Gillard’s no bum. He has a job, a girlfriend, good friends, and strong ties to the community. But how he lives his life—and why—launches Hewitt on a quest to understand the true role of money and mindless consumerism in our lives. By meeting and befriending people like Erik Gillard, Hewitt realized that their happiness was real. What was he—and the rest of a deeply unhappy population—missing?

Saved is the humorous, surprising, and ultimately life-changing result of Hewitt’s quest, a narrative that challenges everything we know about the meaning of money. Hewitt uses his sharp eye for story, exhaustive reporting, and his own experience living below his means to bring what he learned into an even larger context. How does money really work? How can a bankrupt society move forward? The answers are not what you think, and Hewitt has written an important book for our times.

Ben Hewitt is the bestselling author of The Town That Food Saved and Making Supper Safe. His work has appeared in Wired, The New York Times Magazine, Men’s Journal, Bicycling, and others. He lives in Cabot, VT.

Riding My Guitar: The Rick Norcross Story with Stephen Russell Payne and Rick Norcross (Burlington)

You're invited to the kick-off event for Riding My Guitar: The Rick Norcross Story! Join Stephen and Rick for a most entertaining evening during which Stephen will talk about the book, and Rick will sing some of his famous (infamous?!) original folk songs. Don't miss this event celebrating Rick's 50th anniversary as a professional musician.

After nearly three years of global research, Riding My Guitar will be off the presses in time for to coincide with Rick’s 50th Anniversary Concert Tour. "Writing this book has been an extraordinary journey," says Stephen, "I thank Rick for the hundreds of hours he’s ‘suffered’ through recalling his intriguing life and, believe it or not, we’re still good friends! Many fellow musicians, friends and fans from all over the world have generously shared their stories about Rick. I think it is all adding up to a fascinating tale."

“Rick Norcross is a true Vermont original, a kind of musical Jack Kerouac. Stephen Russell Payne’s new book, Riding My Guitar - The Rick Norcross Story perfectly captures his talent, his history and his good heart.”
-- Howard Frank Mosher, award-winning author

“Being a flatlander often means missing out on some of the real Vermont stories. In his new book, Riding My Guitar - The Rick Norcross Story, author Stephen Russell Payne tells an engaging tale of an authentic Vermont talent who might otherwise have remained below the national radar. Rick Norcross’s gifts as a songwriter, performer and photographer are eclipsed only by his generosity and warmth.”
-- George Thomas, legendary VPR radio host

Riding My Guitar is the entertaining story of a true Vermont original. Rick Norcross’s amazing journey has taken him throughout the US and to Europe, but at heart he remains a friendly, modest and very talented Vermonter. In telling this story of the irrepressible Norcross, Stephen Payne also gives us a vivid picture of rural Vermont in the 1950’s and ‘60’s. It’s a fun read!”
-- Tom Slayton, Editor Emeritus, Vermont Life Magazine

“Rick Norcross is a self made man hewn out of all that makes Vermont so unique. Somehow over the decades he has carved out a music career which stays close to its roots in the music he composes, sings and plays. So often his work provides a sense of where he’s from and what he has picked up traveling his own path, always bringing it back to the home place. You hear it whether on a recording, or a concert or just a kitchen tunk over at the neighbors. Good on yah’ Rick, Good on yah.”
-- Ken Squier, owner, Radio Vermont Group

“What I respect most about Rick is his strong sense of community and music’s role in bringing people together. He cares deeply about his fellow musicians and about each and every person sitting in the audience. I’ve taken many a ride in Rick’s bus to gigs, and he’s full of stories, which fi nd their way into his songs. Anyone who listens to our new CD will immediately appreciate how Rick can tell a funny story about a place like Hardwick, while at the same time expressing his true love for the town and its people.”
-- Charlie MacFadyen, Rambler Arranger & Piano Player

Rick Norcross is the longtime leader of Vermont's premier western swing band, Rick and the Ramblers.

Stephen Russell Payne is a fourth-generation Vermonter from the Northeast Kingdom town of St. Johnsbury. A lifelong writer, he has published fiction, non-fiction and poetry in a number of publications including Vermont Life magazine, the Tufts Review, The Vermont Literary Review, Livin’ the Vermont Way magazine and Route 7- Vermont Literary Journal. He's also the author of the novel Cliff Walking.
