Set in rural America and spanning much of the 20th century, Lila & Theron captures the spirit of the American rural experience, as it relates to personal stories of love and sacrifice. Bill Schubart first introduced us to Lila and Theron in his 2008 collection, The Lamoille Stories. This novel plumbs the depths and celebrates the triumphs of the human spirit, immersing us in a world where neighbors and nature are the gifts and love often entails great hardship.
Bill Schubart is both an award-winning novelist and a political and cultural commentator heard weekly on Vermont Public Radio. He is a frequent public speaker on writing and entrepreneurship. Bill grew up in a small town in Lamoille County in Northern Vermont. In his largely French-Canadian family, he heard countless stories that fed his desire to write them down.
“Full of joy, sadness, humor, and insight, Lila & Theron is a clear-eyed celebration of our almost boundless capacity, despite all our human frailties, to love both one another and the place we call home. Over the years I have known many true and good country people like Lila and Theron whom I have been proud and honored to call my friends." — Howard Frank Mosher
