Phoenix Books is excited to host the virtual release celebration for Thea Lewis' newest book: Lakeview Cemetery of Burlington, Vermont!
About the book: Created in 1867, Lakeview is one of New England’s most beautiful burial grounds, where locals used to gather to share picnic lunches and stories of their past. Meet a selfless philanthropist and her equally generous brother, John Purple Howard, the innkeeper’s son who amassed a fortune in the hotel industry. From Civil War hero General George Stannard to lesser-known soldiers of the noted Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Regiment, veterans, paupers, and benefactors populate this peaceful setting.
About the author: Author and historian Thea Lewis is a Vermont native and the creator of Queen City Ghostwalk, the haunted tour chosen “Best Scary Stroll” by Yankee Magazine. Called Vermont’s Queen of Halloween, this maven of mystery has been scaring up history in Burlington and beyond since 2002, with her tours, special events, and books for adults and children. Her titles with The History Press/Arcadia include Haunted Burlington: Spirits of Vermont’s Queen City, Ghosts and Legends of Lake Champlain, Wicked Vermont, and many others.
