CIRCUS SMIRKUS: 25 Years of Running Home to the Circus (Paperback)
Special Order (call or email to check availability)
Circus Smirkus: 25 Years of Running Home to the Circus includes plenty of humor,excitement and even intrigue. Read about:
• The time the royal Greek familyʼs bodyguards mistook Rob Mermin for an assassin
• The story of Henrietta, the Ghost Horse
• The night members of the KGB got arrested for drunk driving...in rural Hardwick, VT
• How the troupe overcame the Great Killington Flood of 1988 and the great Kennebunkport mud-bath of 2008
Rob Mermin and Vermont writer Rob Gurwitt have written a book about an enterprise grounded in the belief that we all – adults and kids alike – need a respite from the drumbeat of modern culture, a place where we can breathe freely and our ideals and dreams can flourish.
In a world where youthful charm and heart inevitably get commercialized, Smirkus is proof that kids and adults — on both sides of the ring—hunger for the real thing. Circus Smirkus: 25 Years of Running Home to the Circus shows you how Smirkus nurtures it, and why it matters.
