Rooted in a Thoreauvian sense of Place, a new literary movement is sweeping Vermont. From Walden to Walden North, Vermont, localvores have shifted their focus from eating to reading, writing, and publishing! We are thrilled to be a big part of this movement. Our recent NEK (Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom) book tour was a great successâ€”there is a lot of interest in our new publishing company. As publishersÂ in a global market, weÂ mediate between the great world and the place we call home. We look for the genius loci, the “spirit of place,” in selecting our titles and partnering with our authors and readers.
Locally,Â Vermonters are unearthing what was once “concealed”â€”to borrow Thoreau’s wordsâ€”in their “haze-filled valleys” and mountainside farms to share with readers “their Waldens” in poetry, stories, and novels.
