  • One Little Monster

    Saturday, October 20 at 11:00 am

    Join us for a story time and for a "make your own mini coloring book" activity with author-illustrator Mark Gonyea!

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  A sleep deprived kid creates monsters of his own to banish the ones that are keeping him awake in this fiendishly funny picture book that's the perfect counting and bedtime story. In graphic artist and designer Mark Gonyea's clever counting book, a little boy snuggles in for a nap, but much to his surprise, silly little monsters pop up wherever he looks. First there's one at the window, then two appear when he blinks, and three pop out when one of the monsters sneezes. Before he knows it, there are ten kooky creatures in his room. But will the little boy find a way to outsmart those pesky pests?

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Mark Gonyea was born in northern New York. While spending the better portion of his early life watching TV, going to movies, and playing video games, little did he realize Star Wars was to be the essential ground work for a career in cartooning and graphic design. He now lives and works in Vermont.

  • Coming of Age

    Saturday, October 20 at 4:00 pm

    Join us in welcoming Madeleine Kunin to Rutland, for a talk on her new book, Coming of Age.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  Many readers are already familiar with Madeleine Kunin, the former three-term governor of Vermont, who served as the deputy secretary of education and ambassador to Switzerland under President Bill Clinton. In her newest book, a memoir entitled Coming of Age: My Journey to the Eighties, the topic is aging, but she looks well beyond the physical tolls and explores the emotional ones as well. And she has had an extraordinary life: governor, ambassador, feminist, wife, mother, professor, poet, and much, much more.

A gifted architect, Philip Corta, has the opportunity of a lifetime, the design of a major office/residential complex on New York's West Side, The Eden Center. The project endures many major setbacks resulting from the arrogance and shallow-minded behavior of the developer, corruption in City Hall, sabotage and murder by organized criminals, and recurring uncertainties about financing.
