    Join us for a meet and greet and book signing with author Erin Rounds, featuring her new book, Charlotte's Bones!

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  Many thousands of years ago, when a sheet of ice up to a mile thick began to let go of the land, the Atlantic Ocean flooded great valleys that had been scooped out by glaciers, and the salty waves of an inland sea lapped the green hills of Vermont. Into this arm of the sea swam Charlotte. Her milky, smooth, muscled body sliced slowly through the water like scissors through silk. Like a chirping canary, her voice echoed...

    Join Pat Goudey O'Brien and Lisa Halvorsen for a meet and greet and book signing at Phoenix! Backroads & Byways of Vermont is an all new guide to the scenic routes of our state.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  Vermont is bigger than it looks. This may be one of the country’s smallest states but the more you drive here, the more beauty you uncover. While drives do include popular resort towns, the focus is on getting away from tourist hubs. This brand-new first edition suggests drives through covered bridges to high roads with unexpected vistas, to waterfalls and swimming holes, to...

    When Phoenix's co-owner Mike DeSanto decided to plan a book festival for 2019, he began looking at other events for ideas. Imagine his surprise when his research uncovered an old acting friend now writing novels who attended one such writer’s conference last fall. Mike reached out to NY-based author Gray Basnight through Facebook, and the two connected, sharing updates of each other’s lives since their young acting days, and realizing that they both moved from the stage to the page. Flash forward to September 13, 2018, when the two will reunite at Phoenix Books Burlington, where Gray will read and sign...

  • Adult Book Club

    Thursday, September 13 at 5:00 pm

    Instead of meeting monthly to discuss a single book, we meet to talk about what we’ve been reading and maybe bring a book to recommend. Feel free to bring a title to share or a few ideas of what book has made you think, made you laugh, or made you mad. This is a meeting of people who love books, want to chat with other book lovers, and maybe even eat a few snacks.

    If a recommendation sparks your curiosity, any books purchased during or after the meeting receive the 10 percent book club discount.

    While we encourage everyone to read and share their love of books, this book club is for those who read adult fiction. For our younger book lovers, we host a similar book club aimed towards young adult fiction once a month.
