Little Island with Katharine Britton (Burlington)

Join us in welcoming Katharine Britton for a discussion of her new novel, Little Island, which has already been garnering high praise:

“[A] deeply compassionate story of an extended New England family beleaguered by loss, misunderstandings, and terrible secrets...[Britton] understands how, through love, the human heart can overcome just about anything.”—Howard Frank Mosher

“Acutely rendered details of a beloved natural landscape and [a] wise understanding of complex human hearts. The tale is touched with heartbreak but leavened with humor.”—Reeve Lindbergh, author of Under a Wing and Forward From Here

Katharine Britton teaches at the Institute of Lifelong Education at Dartmouth College, the Writer's Barn in Shelburne and the Writer's Center in White River, Vermont. She has written three screenplays, one of which is a Moondance International Film Festival winner, and has a master's degree in creative writing from Dartmouth College. She is the author of one previous novel, Her Sister's Shadow, and lives in Vermont.

"Grace
Flowers
By the water
Have fun!"
These are Joy's grandmother's last words--left behind on a note. A note
that Joy's mother, Grace, has interpreted as instructions for her
memorial service. And so, the far-flung clan will gather at their inn on
Little Island, Maine, to honor her.
Joy can't help dreading the
weekend. Twenty years ago, a tragedy nearly destroyed the family--and
still defines them. Joy, Grace, her father Gar, and twins Roger and
Tamar all have their parts to play. And now Joy, facing an empty nest
and a nebulous future, feels more vulnerable than ever to the dangerous
currents running through her family.
But this time, Joy will
discover that there is more than pain and heartbreak that binds them
together, when a few simple words lift the fog and reveal what truly
matters...

"Deluge: Tropical Storm Irene, Vermont's Flash Floods, and How One Small State Saved Itself" with Peggy Shinn

Join us on the second anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene for a special event with Peggy Shinn, author of Deluge: Tropical Storm Irene, Vermont's Flash Floods, and How One Small State Saved Itself.

On August 28, 2011, after pounding the Caribbean and the U.S. Eastern seaboard for more than a week, Hurricane Irene finally made landfall in New Jersey. As the storm headed into New England, it was quickly downgraded to a tropical storm. And by Sunday afternoon, national news outlets were giving postmortems on the damage. Except for some flooding in low-lying areas, New York City--Irene's biggest target--had escaped its worst-case scenario. Story over. But the story wasn't over. As Irene's eye drifted north, its bands of heavy rains twisted westward over Vermont's Green Mountains. Streams and rivers were transformed into torrents of brown water and debris, gouging mountainsides, reshaping valleys, washing out roads, pulling apart bridges, and carrying away homes, livestock, and automobiles. For weeks, mountain towns were isolated, with no way in or out, and thousands of people were left homeless. In the immediate aftermath of the disaster, it fell on the shoulders of ordinary Vermonters to help victims and rebuild the state. Deluge is the complete story of the floods, the rescue, and the recovery, as seen through the eyes of the people who lived through them.

Peggy Shinn is a freelance writer and editor who has written for Ski Racing Magazine, Skiing, and Ski magazines, Fodor’s travel guidebooks, Vermont Life, and the U.S. Olympic Committee’s website, TeamUSA.org, among others. She lives in Rutland, Vermont.
