Vermont Events in September

Author Ernest Hebert Book Signing 'Howard Elman's Farewell' 9/26/14 - 9/26/14
"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!
