This is part of a series of events with Wind Ridge Publishing authors taking place at Phoenix Books Burlington this fall. WRP authors are all local residents; however, their books reflect a broad range of issues, experience, and global interests—from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters’ Rick Peyser and Bill Mares’ in Brewing Change, Peyser’s personal account of social responsibility and the lives of coffee farmers, to Vermont wildlife rehabilitator Helena Nicolay’s Squirrel Diaries and Shelburne veterinarian Dr. Steven Metz’s book, Exotic Tails. Other featured WRP releases include VPR commentaries from the Executive Director of the Vermont Humanities Council, Peter Gilbert’s I Was Thinking and Paul Boisvert’s photo essays in his coffee table book, Burlington ~ A Sense of Place.
