“Philip Baruth’s  Senator Leahy: A Life in Scenes takes us deep into the blockbuster life of America’s most senior Senator. [3:00 Saturday, History Center]Having vaulted into the United States Senate at the tender age of 34, Patrick Leahy is now the longest serving member of that institution – just third in line to the Presidency when Democrats hold control.  Baruth focuses on Leahy’s cultivation of a “Top Cop” persona both in the media and at the ballot box, not only in post-Watergate Vermont, but in a post-9/11 America viciously divided between the Red states and the Blue. Philip Baruth is a professor of English at the University of Vermont and served as the majority leader of the Vermont Senate from 2012–2016. An award-winning commentator for Vermont Public Radio, he’s the author of several acclaimed novels, most recently The X President selected as a New York Times Notable Book of 2003; and The Brothers Boswell  a Washington Post Best Book of the Year 2009.”

Alvarez and Field, both Vermont residents, have collaborated on a new picture book, Where Do They Go?  The book has been described as a beautifully crafted poem for children of all ages who have ever wondered what happens to those they love after they die. [10:00 Saturday, Town Hall Theater]The author and artist, both Vermont residents, will read from and discuss their new book. Julia Alvarez, a novelist, poet, essayist, and recipient of the National Medal of the Arts, is considered one of the most prominent and widely read Latina writers of her time. Sabra Field, the quintessential artist of New England, creates immediately recognizable prints of brilliantly colored barns, churches, villages, farm fields, and seasons which have been widely collected and exhibited. Julia Alvarez’s novel, How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, is the first novel by a Dominican-American woman to receive wide acclaim in the United States, selling over 250,000 copies. Sabra Field’s images have appeared on wine labels, UNICEF cards, CD albums, opera posters, and most famously, on the 1987 Vermont bicentennial US Postal Service stamp which sold 60 million copies.”

“Sonny Saul runs the famous “Pleasant Street Bookstore” in Woodstock which he started with his mother when he moved to Vermont from Philadelphia thirty years ago. It has been called one of New England’s finest used bookstores. [Lead-in: 7:00 Thursday, July 27, Pleasant Street Books]Featuring two floors of browsing – over 10,000 books – and many shelves and book cases full of very old books with beautiful bindings, rare books, and first editions, as well as many “good used books”, “Pleasant Street Books” is also a publishing company with a very small and select inventory which features printed music and cd’s as well as pamphlets and books. Some – but not all – of these titles were edited, composed, written, or designed by Sonny. Downstairs in the bookstore is a grand piano where Sonny and various ensembles regularly perform. Born and raised in Atlantic City, NJ, Sonny studied and lived in and around Philadelphia before moving to Vermont. He has played, composed, and taught piano his whole life. For this occasion Sonny will introduce and perform some of his original piano compositions, and will talk some about his life in music and books.”
