Join us for the first meeting of the Phoenix Books Burlington Reading Group!  We'll discuss Birds of a Lesser Paradise by Megan Mayhew Bergman.  "Bergman's first collection of stories is utterly fantastic," says Billy.

*Through 2/26/13 only. Some exclusions apply.

Birds of a Lesser Paradise: Stories Cover Image
$17.00
ISBN: 9781451643367
Availability: Not in stock. At Our Partner Warehouse: Usually Ships in 4-7 Days.
Published: Scribner - November 6th, 2012

Exploring the way our choices and
relationships are shaped by the menace and beauty of the natural world,
Megan Mayhew Bergman’s powerful and heartwarming collection captures the
surprising moments when the pull of our biology becomes evident, when
love or fear collides with good sense, or when our attachment to an
animal or wild place can’t be denied.

In “Housewifely Arts,” a
single mother and her son drive hours to track down an African gray
parrot that can mimic her deceased mother’s voice. A population-control
activist faces the conflict between her loyalty to the environment and
her maternal desire in “Yesterday’s Whales.” And in the title story, a
lonely naturalist allows an attractive stranger to lead her and her
aging father on a hunt for an elusive woodpecker.

As intelligent as they are moving, the stories in Birds of a Lesser Paradise are
alive with emotion, wit, and insight into the impressive power that
nature has over all of us. This extraordinary collection introduces a
young writer of remarkable talent.


Phoenix Books Hosts First Night's Burlington Coffeehouse

We’re excited to announce that Phoenix Books Burlington will be hosting Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse during First Night Burlington this year! Special thanks also goes to Green Mountain Coffee who will be sponsoring the site and providing coffee to the audience as they listen to the dulcet tones of the Patrick Fitzsimmons Trio, Peter Katz, Mark LeGrand & Sarah Munro, Anne Weiss, and Rik Palieri & Rebecca Padula.

The Coffeehouse will be open from 5pm-10pm, and Phoenix Books will be open for business from 10am-10 pm, on New Year’s Eve. Stop by and visit us!

First Night is a substance-free, New Year's Eve festival of the arts. It began in Boston in 1976 and is now in over 130 cities throughout the world.  Burlington was the fifth city in the world to embrace the First Night concept. First Night Burlington is Vermont's largest, single-day arts festival, providing an accessible and affordable New Year's Eve celebration to thousands of people in our community.  For more information, and to get your buttons, visit firstnightburlington.com.

Patrick Fitzsimmons Trio
Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse: 5-5:50pm

Acclaimed Vermont singer-songwriter accompanied with his trio. "Fitzsimmons is an immensely talented singer. Wide eyed and heartfelt, his music ably and honestly recalls a simpler period of American pop music." Seven Days

Peter Katz
Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse: 6-6:40pm
Multiple award-winner and JUNO Nominee Peter Katz captivates listeners with his unique brand of contemporary folk music. Playing 150+ dates per year all over the world, Katz’s remarkable efforts have resulted in him selling over 15,000 copies of his discs and sharing the stage with such notable artists as The Swell Season, Bedouin Soundclash, Dan Mangan and the legendary Garth Hudson from The Band. Not one to waste any time, Peter has just released a new studio album called ‘Still Mind Still’, followed by an extensive tour throughout Canada and parts of the U.S. and Europe. This new collection of songs is Katz’s best writing to date, recorded mostly live off the floor at a cabin in the woods and surrounded by a stunning atmospheric production thanks to producer Rob Szabo. “If talent alone ensures success, then Peter Katz will soon be a name on everyone’s lips” -The Record

Mark LeGrand & Sarah Munro
Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse: 7-7:40pm
Sarah Munro has been singing all of her life. Her rich musical background beginning with her mom singing her to sleep with such mountain classics as Leadbelly's In The Pines. You can still hear the rich heartfelt soul of this music echoing joyously in her voice. Mark has been writing and performing his brand of "Thinking Man's Honky Tonk" in the spirit of John Prine and Hank Williams for over three decades. He has released two fine Vermont CDs, All Dressed Up, 2002 and Cold New England Town, 2006. The two released their first CD in 1998 titled Mischievous Angel to rave reviews. Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Austin Texas music icon comments, "I think the greatest function of music is when spirit comes through it — and to me, that's what happens with these songs." Together Mark and Sarah have a stunning harmony sound and an engaging stage presence.

Anne Weiss
Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse: 8-8:40pm
Anne Weiss unleashes her new double CD, “Where Folk Gets the Blues”, on the world! Funky, folky, bluesy, political, poetic, and sensual, Anne’s music and songwriting have been called “a meeting at the crossroads of Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, and Aretha Franklin”. Some of the finest musicians of the Pacific Northwest have collaborated with Anne, including renowned blues guitarists Mary Flower and David Jacobs-Strain, gold recording artist Billy Oskay (Nightnoise). Several of the selections also feature Kenny Pasarelli (bass, Elton John, Joe Walsh, and Stephen Stills). Originally from New York City, Anne now resides in Portland, Oregon. With six CDs and book of poetry that gained her an Allen Ginsberg Poetry award, Anne has performed with everyone from powerfolk singer / songwriter Ani DiFranco to blues aficionado Taj Mahal. She is known for her enormous bluesy voice, great guitar chops, emotional piano work, humor and striking stage presence.

The Chalk Cats (Rik Palieri & Rebecca Padula)
Jeff Miller’s Burlington Coffeehouse: 9-9:40pm

Their roots run deep. Rik Palieri and Rebecca Padula employ an arsenal of instruments to dig up dust bowl ballads, blues, Appalachian banjo tunes, Hobo stories and songs from their home state, Vermont. Their set often includes music from the folk revival of Seeger and Guthrie, Utah Phillips, Leadbelly and traditional music mined from the vast archives of folksong collectors who have come before them. They explore the diversity of American musical traditions and make their own innovative contributions to these traditions with their original songs. They also enjoy sharing the music with audiences, getting them to sing or stomp along with their high energy performance and drawing them in with Rik's stories and Rebecca's whiskey and honey voice.
