Here’s a look at what’s ahead:
Tuesday, September 26, 7 p.m.: Busy Person’s Book Club
Announcing the debut of our Busy Person’s Book Club! If you love to talk about books with other readers but have trouble fitting an assigned book into your schedule – while still trying to catch up on all of the books you already want to read – this might be the right book club for you. Each month, we will discuss books fitting into a pre-determined theme. This month, in honor of Banned Books Week, we invite you to bring a controversial book that you’ve read and would like to talk about. Books can be fiction or non-fiction, written for adults or children (because grownups read kids’ books, too!)
RSVPs encouraged – email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 472-5533.
Future themes might include mysteries, science fiction, the American canon, or literature in translation – suggestions are welcome.
Tuesday, October 3, 7 p.m.: Bill Mares & Jeff Danziger, The Full Vermonty
Touting the value of Vermonters’ independent nature and with healthy doses of both humor and indignation, The Full Vermonty takes a stand opposite “Trump Nation” with the statement, “Life in Vermont is already great.” Join contributing authors, illustrators, and editors Bill Mares and Jeff Danziger for a look at their funny and passionately written new book, The Full Vermonty, published in Vermont by Green Writers Press.
Tuesday, October 17th, 7 p.m.: Tony Whedon, The Hatcheck Girl
Tony Whedon’s latest poetry collection, The Hatcheck Girl, vividly describes border crossings where language, culture and states of consciousness collide. In these richly layered poems about jazz most of the musicians we meet are sidemen: few are famous, most are notorious. They’re united, as he says in his opening poem “The Tradition of the New,” by their devotion to the music and by their appetite for a note, a phrase to “make it new . . . over and over.”
Tony Whedon is a jazz musician and poet who lives with his wife in Montgomery, Vermont. Listen to samples of his poetry at his website.
