BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Join author Bob Wilson for an introduction to his book, “Vermont…Who Knew? Quirky Characters, Unsung Heroes, Wholesome Offbeat Stuff,” Monday, Oct. 21 at 5:30 p.m. at the Rockingham Library. This nonfiction travel book is in color and is best defined by its 125 profiles, essays, and anecdotes, serious and humorous alike. These entries bring together the most unique people, places and events – both past and present – the Green Mountain State has to offer. Several of the book’s featured subjects will attend and contribute to the event. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders wrote the Foreword, but likely will not be available.
Most of the book’s stories are followed by links to short YouTube videos – bonus sight-and-sound coverage enriching words just read. This pairing makes the book not just a good read, but an unforgettable multimedia experience. Signed copies will be available to purchase.
Bob Wilson lives in Saxtons River. He is the author of 14 books and a contributor to various magazines. His background includes editorial positions at McGraw-Hill, Houghton Mifflin and Macmillan.
This event is free and open to the public. The library is located at 65 Westminster St., Bellows Falls, Vt. and is wheelchair accessible. For more information, call 802-463-4270, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to www.rockinghamlibrary.org.
