Saturday, April 29th: Indie Bookstore Day!
Join us and independent bookstores all over the country in celebrating these special places where we love to come and spend time, alone or gathered with others, sharing in the world of words, ideas, and stories that connect us all.
At The Galaxy Bookshop, we will feature the new paperback edition of My Bookstore, a collection of essays by well-known authors, written about the bookstores they love. We were honored to be included in this book in an essay by the late Howard Frank Mosher. All of our visitors on Indie Bookstore Day will be invited to share their bookstore stories on a roll of paper that will be displayed in the store afterward.
From 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., meet Kurt Staudter and Adam Krakowski, authors of Vermont Beer: History of a Brewing Revolution. Adam Krakowski is also the author of Vermont Prohibition: Teetotalers, Bootleggers & Corruption.
The books detail our state’s long history of brewing and selling beer and spirits, facing numerous obstacles – including two periods of prohibition – along the way.
Learn more about the national celebration at indiebookstoreday.com.
Tuesday, May 2nd, 7 p.m.: Writing Workshop with Joni B. Cole, Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, Be Happier
Registration Required – $10 fee, may be applied to the purchase of a copy of Good Naked at the event.
Tuesday, June 13th, 7 p.m.: Bill Schubart, Lila & Theron
“Lila and Theron do not imagine themselves poor, nor do they covet what they don’t have. They are whole in themselves and on their land and progress impinges little on their lives.”
Award winning author and public radio commentator, Bill Schubart, first introduced us to Lila & Theron characters in his 2008 short story collection, The Lamoille Stories. After being influenced by William Faulkner’s acceptance speech on winning the Nobel Prize, he returns seven years later to finish their stories.
Join us in welcoming Bill Schubart for a reading and book signing from his new novel!
