    Celebrate all the delicious flavors that Vermont has to offer at this event with Tracey Medeiros!  Meet Tracey and enjoy samples from her new book The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook.  (Might we suggest, too, that a signed copy of The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook makes a perfect Mother's Day gift?)

    When Tracey Medeiros wrote Dishing Up Vermont in 2008, she wanted to showcase the chefs and restaurateurs who were dazzling taste buds with their fresh, whole‐food creations. With The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook, Medeiros has traversed the Green Mountain State once again, in search of not only those celebrated chefs but the hard‐working...

    Join us to celebrate the work of young artists from Poker Hill Arts!  This event is free and open to the public, and everyone is invited.

    Poker Hill Arts is an after school art program and summer day camp conceived and run by Chris Gluck in Underhill, Vermont. Each school day, about 20 energetic, fun-loving kids, ages 5-12, come pouring off the bus at Chris's home studio for an afternoon of art or crafts. After some outdoor time and a snack, they usually have a calming, centering activity, such as yoga. Then comes the project of the day, which might include drawing, painting, sculpting, engineering, and/or crafting.

    Vegetables are more than just food for humans--they've been characters, companions, and even protagonists throughout history. Join Rebecca Rupp for some little-known stories about the origins, legends, and historical significance of the world's most popular vegetables.

    This event is part of Screen-Free Week at Phoenix Books Essex, and we hope it will inspire you to get out there and garden or, if you prefer, to enjoy some facetime with your friends and family over a meal containing a healthy - and interesting - serving of vegetables.  We'll bet you find a few conversation-starters among Rebecca's stories!

    Rebecca Rupp has written more than a dozen...
