Description: Enjoy summer evenings with Vermont authors in an intimate setting. Make a night of it; stop by the café for dinner or drinks, or come from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm for a garden party on the patio or in the gallery, featuring local food and drink pairings. Kathryn Davis, the senior fiction writer on the faculty of The Writing Program at Washington University and author of eight novels, received high praise for her spellbinding new novel, The Silk Road, in recent reviews in Slate and The New York Times Book Review. The Silk Road begins on a mat in yoga class, deep within a labyrinth on a settlement somewhere in the icy north, under the canny guidance of Jee Moon. When someone fails to arise from corpse pose, the Astronomer, the Archivist, the Botanist, the Keeper, the Topologist, the Geographer, the Iceman, and the Cook remember the paths that brought them there—paths on which they still seem to be traveling. Billed as one of the most original voices in contemporary America, Davis received, among many others, a Kafka Prize for fiction by an American woman and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
