Digestive problems of one sort or another are common these days. Many people deal on a daily basis with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, constipation or diarrhea (or both), acid reflux, food allergies, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, diverticulitis, and many other concerns. Even autoimmune diseases--hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, and many others--are caused by factors significantly rooted in the gut, as are many so-called psychological illnesses, like anxiety, depression, and ADHD. Drugs are the typically suggested solution offered by conventional doctors, who often misunderstand the cause and therefore misdirect their treatment. But there are other, much better ways! Join naturopathic physician Dr. Chris Decker for a fascinating look at the whole topic of gut health, including its relationship to autoimmunity and psychological issues.

American paintings were the last collection assembled by Shelburne Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960) in the late 1950s. Relying on her own keen eye and assisted by leading figures in museums and galleries, Mrs. Webb purchased works by Copley, Cole, Durand, Homer, Prior, Heade, Bierstadt, Lane, Johnson, Cassatt, Grandma Moses, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others. In the years following her death, the collection grew to number over 1,000 works. Shelburne Museum is the only museum in our region to hold American paintings, with particular strengths in New England landscapes and portraiture. In May 2014 the museum reopened its Webb Gallery after months of renovation with Painting a Nation: American Art at Shelburne Museum to explore the creation of this canonical gathering of paintings within an institution better known as a center of American folk art. The American Eye will focus attention on American artists, their artistic inspirations and the importance of American art in the shaping of a national identity. Noted scholars participating in the day’s discussions and gallery tours include museum director Tom Denenberg, independent art historian Marc Simpson, Carol Troyen, the Kristin and Roger Servison Curator Emerita of American Paitings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Ellery Foutch, assistant professor of American Studies at Middlebury College. A limited number of symposium scholarships are available.

A discussion on Wonder, a New York Times bestseller, with scholar Francette Cerulli. This program is open to the public. VT Reads is a program of the Vermont Humanities Council and hosted by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Wonder is an extraordinary tale about a powerful, shared feeling that is present throughout our entire lives: the desire to fit-in and be accepted -- a source of anxiety for all of us, but it is particulary intense when we are growing up, especially if we are different. August is an “ordinary ten-year-old kid”, apart from a marked facial deformity. Come to the library, take out the book, and read August’s remarkable stories of struggles and triumphs as he deals with the unwelcomed attention and skin-deep judgements that are all-too-common in our society. Then, come back and share your own stories!

Author Ernest Hebert Book Signing 'Howard Elman's Farewell'
City:Norwich
Place:Norwich Bookstore
Price:FREE
Time:7:00PM
Phone:802-6491114

"Hebert’s American saga, with its colorful characters and intriguing word play, is an enduring accomplishment."—Publishers Weekly Suppose all a man has left is his imagination. Then what? Part Falstaff, part King Lear, but all American, Howard Elman was a fifty-something workingman when he burst onto the literary scene in 'The Dogs of March', the first novel of the Darby Chronicles. Now in this, its seventh and final installment, the Darby constable is an eighty-something widower who wants to do “a great thing” before he motors off into the sunset. Howard Elman’s Farewell begins as a coming of (old) age story, morphs into a murder mystery, expands into a family saga, and in the end might just follow Howard Elman into the spirit world. This is a novel for people who like New England fiction with humor, pathos, and just a touch of magical realism. Please join us for this special event!
