So come on by for a relaxing evening listening to some great music and stories. Rachel Hamilton is a native Vermonter who's been singing and writing music for over 30 years. "I come from a large family," she says, "and have found a lot of inspiration to write and tell stories about from all the years in a small space with many people. I love the way music brings people from many different backgrounds together. Nothing tells me all things are possible like music does - it's simply magical."

Dan Close (Essex)

Dan Close will read from A Year on the Bus, a fun, funny and provocative collection of thoughts and stories reflecting the lives of contemporary school students from kindergarten to 12th grade who live in the rolling hill country of northern Vermont.The stories also reflect the life of their bus driver and the times in which we live. They are in turn humorous, serious, poignant, and wacko – just like life itself. This book is not intended as an expose of any sort. It does reveal, however, a lot of information about life that most people might take for granted, such as the training of school bus drivers; the resilience of school kids; and the impact of far-off events on all of us.Dan Close moved to the hills of Underhill, Vermont in 1982. He has also lived in Brooklyn; Long Island; Manhattan; St. Croix, Virgin Islands; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Bekoji, Ethiopia. His interests include, among other things, breathtaking mountains and lakes, traditional cultures, contemporary world politics, and the origins and futures of the universe.

Vermont's Irish Rebel with William L. McKone (Essex)

Please join us in welcoming William L. McKone, who will read from his new book, Vermont's Irish Rebel: Capt. John Lonergan.Experience the fascinating life of John Lonergan:  The Potato Famine led to the uprising of 1848 near his home town of Carrick on Suir, County Tipperary, and his immigration as a boy to Vermont. Lonergan's dedication to the liberation of Ireland from British rule brought him into the Fenian Brotherhood, where he joined with other militant nationalists. Lonergan formed Vermont's only ethnic military unit, the Emmet Guards, which served as Company A, 13th Vermont, in the Civil War. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry in the Battle of Gettysburg, leading the charge of the Vermont regiments against Pickett's forces on July 3, 1863. After the war, Lonergan joined in the Fenian invasions of Canada in 1866 and 1870. He died in 1902, before Ireland became "a nation once again," and is buried in Burlington, Vermont.Originally from south Texas, Bill McKone lives in northern Vermont at the foot of Mount Mansfield.  The combination of his own Irish heritage, a deep interest in the Civil War, an MA in military history, five years residence in Canada, and a taste for Jameson whiskey convinced him that Lonergan's tale should be told.
