Join us to learn about Megan Baxter’s new book Farm Girl: A Memoir.
Becoming a farm girl wasn't an easy choice; Megan Baxter fought against family and expectations. Farm Girl is Baxter's coming of age story and the story of an outsider finding where she belongs.
"Baxter’s language is as rich as the soil she tends; it will be a joy to see how she blossoms in her career."
—Jodi Picoult, author of The Book of Two Ways
Baxter grew up in Hanover, NH, farmed the fields at Cedar Circle Farm in East Thetford, VT and now works at Honey Field Farm, here in Norwich, VT. Her essays have won national awards including a Pushcart Prize, and have been listed in The Best American Essays of 2019.
Baxter will speak with Honey Field Farm co-owner Valerie Woodhouse.

Farm Girl is a memoir of urgent grace that crosses boundaries of genre and time. In her second year of college, Megan finds herself bonded to a lover spiraling into addiction and two thousand miles away from her heart’s home—a stretch of forty certified-organic acres along the banks of the Connecticut River separating Vermont and New Hampshire.
