2017 BOOK TOUR for GREEN WRITERS PRESS AUTHORS!
September 28 — Jim Krosschell’s One Man’s Maine, Reading at Camden Public Library
GWP author, Peter Gould, takes off his Shakespeare hat and returns to the Galaxy Bookshop to share his new book, Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm.
Horse-Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm is a patchwork of true stories of a young man’s life on a Vermont farm commune at the height of the back-to-the-land movement. Peter will read from his newest book, play some music, and answer questions in a lively discussion.
As one of 2017’s “Guilford Reads” events, Peter will share copies of HDY at the Guilford Fair. Come and share the shade of the Free Library booth, and, if you’ve read the book, come and talk about it with the author. If you haven’t, there will be copies there.
NOTE: DATE TBD. Please check back for confirmation!
Peter will read from HDY and he will be hosted by this venerable bookshop in the lovely hamlet of Woodstock, VT where he will be introduced by Alison Clarkson. Alison is well known in the area as a senator, but less well known is the fact that Alison is a great Peter Gould fan and booster and will help to “bring out the troops” for the event!
Peter will be signing books and meeting his many (legion) fans at the Burlington Book Festival—Come by the Green Writers Press table. There will also be a Green Writers Press reading/reception on Saturday afternoon.

Poetry of Place & Environment with Dede Cummings: When asked in an interview if he was a nature poet, Vermont poet Galway Kinnell responded, “What other kind of poet is there?” Join Vermont poet and founder of Green Writers Press, Dede Cummings, on a journey through time and landscape as she reads selections of poems from her award-winning collection, To Look Out From. John Elder writes of Cummings’ new collection, “What an authentic, moving, and beautifully cadenced collection this is.” Following the poetry reading, audience participation is encouraged to address questions such as “What role does the environment play in literature? How can instilling a vivid sense of place help literature fulfill its role as a form of solace, enrichment, and betterment for writers?” Cummings reminds her readers that Henry David Thoreau says, so typically, It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. . . . Bring a favorite nature poem to share.
There will be more events and workshops TK! Please call Dede at 802-380-1121 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to schedule and event, reading, workshop, class.
