Vermont Reads

This Fall's Vermont Reads selection is A Restless Spirit: the Story of Robert Frost by Natalie Bober. Copies are available now at the library.

While this event is for adults and young adults, the books by and about Robert Frost that we have in our children's collection are worth a mention:
Birches illustrated by Ed Young
Cow in Apple Time illustrated by Dean Yeagle
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening illustrated by Susan Jeffers
Making Poems for America by Gorham Bert Munson
Robert Frost, America's Poet by Doris Faber

To celebrate Vermont Reads, we have the following programs scheduled that are suitable for adults and young adults:
September 17 @ 7:00 pm: "The Endurance of Robert Frost" presented by Jim Schley, Executive Director of the Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire
October 15 @6:30 pm: "Take a Bite Out of Poetry"- Enjoy pizza while listening to and reciting bad poetry (your own or someone else's).
October 23 @7:00 pm: Book discussion

Even if you're having difficulty finding time to read the book because of "promises to keep before you sleep", you are still welcome to attend the programs. See you there!
