    richard brownWhen Richard Brown moved to the Northeast Kingdom nearly 50 years ago, he encountered a way of life that was fast disappearing. Determined to record it before it disappeared, he spent years collecting images using an 8 x 10″ large plate view camera. He documented not only the hauntingly beautiful landscape but also the people who stayed and worked the stubborn hills and “did so with great but fierce attachment.”

A Bookseller's Blotter


reading at storeNo room at the reading?

We are frequently faced with a conundrum: Our goal is to host intimate readings with authors in our cozy store and yet, we truly don’t want to disappoint anyone by running out of seats. 

Sometimes we plan in advance to use one of the larger venues in the region and manage these as ticketed events. Occasionally we are able to move the reading when the reservation list grows beyond our capacity. And there are times - like this month - when we just run out of seats. Changing the location of a gathering is challenging: often the spaces are booked months in advance, there is considerable cost, and a larger venue may alter the ambiance of the author’s visit. We are happy to have the author autograph a book for you if you cannot get to a reading for whatever reason. We appreciate your cooperation with our reservation and confirmation process.

Remember, most talks are filmed by CATV for future viewing. You can find the link on our website.

Wishing you and yours a peaceful season filled with books and good cheer. ~ Liza
