  • Vermont Wild Vol. 6

    Thursday, November 07 at 7:00 pm

    Join Megan Price for a book talk and storytelling to celebrate the sixth volume in the bestselling Vermont Wild series.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Megan Price was born and raised in Vermont, worked as an award-winning journalist for many years and was elected to serve three terms in the Vermont House of Representatives. The books in her Vermont Wild series, chronicling game warden' zany encounters with lovesick moose, hungry bears, rioting raccoons, wily poachers and stubborn hunting dogs, are Vermont best-sellers.

    ABOUT THE VERMONT WILD BOOKS:  Whether confronting moose, rescuing raccoons, training reluctant tracking dogs or searching for clues to catch clever poachers, Price's true tales of our North Woods resonate with all ages, tourists as well as Vermont natives. The "Wild" books are taken to hunting camp, taught in middle and high schools to encourage children to read and write their own stories, read out loud in nursing homes and mailed world wide to those who love Vermont.

    ADMISSION:  Free and open to all.

Icons are not merely famous for being famous; the media alone cannot make or break stars; fans are not simply passive dupes. Instead, journalists, the public, and celebrities themselves all compete, passionately and expertly, to shape the stories we tell about celebrities and fans. The result: a high-stakes drama as endless as it is unpredictable.

    Drawing on scrapbooks, personal diaries, and vintage fan mail, Marcus traces celebrity culture back to its nineteenth-century roots, when people the world over found themselves captivated by celebrity chefs, bad-boy poets, and actors such as the "divine" Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), as famous in her...
