News The Lamoille Stories: Reading by Bill Schubart, April 13.
MARLBORO, VT - (April 7, 2009) - Author Bill Schubart will read selections from his new book The Lamoille Stories: Uncle Benoit's Wake and Other Tales from Vermont on Monday, April 13 at 7:00 pm in Marlboro College's Ragle Hall, Serkin Center.
Schubart's book brings to life the friends and characters of his native Lamoille County, where in the late 1950s and early 1960s, life was lived close to the earth and often against the grain. Schubart's collection of twenty-two stories captures Vermont in transition from an enclave of hill farms and small towns where everyone knew your grandfather to a place where vehicles bearing license plates from "away" mix with hippie vans filled with born-again Vermonters getting back to the land...until snowfall.
"Bill Schubart captures something of Vermont that many of us barely remember, and others may never experience. Each of The Lamoille Stories is a unique experience -lovingly told, with insight, pathos, and especially humor," said Joseph A. Citro, author of Passing Strange and Cursed.
Bill Schubart has lived with his family in Vermont since 1947. He writes and speaks extensively on the media and other civic issues and has written as well for Current. He has spoken at numerous industry and media events including Book Expo. He also writes and publishes opinion and fiction at www.Schubart.com. He is a founder of Resolution, Inc., a fully integrated E-commerce services partner. He cofounded Phil Records, an independent record label, as well as the Pleiades Music Group, a music publishing company. At the age of 26, Schubart was elected Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Vermont Arts Council, the State's arts agency - the youngest trustee ever to serve as Chairman - and then served again at age 41.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Marlboro College Public Relations Department at (802) 251-7644, or visit the news section at www.marlboro.edu.
