BY JILL ANDERSEN, ADULT PROGRAMS COORDINATOR, CARPENTER-CARSE LIBRARY

On Wednesday, January 17 at 5:30 p.m., Bill Schubart will be joining us to explore the issues raised in his newest book, Lila & Theron. Discussion will focus on how Vermont's rural culture has changed in our lifetimes - for better and for worse. Consideration will be given to the impact a hardscrabble existence forges on the values and cohesion of our small towns and villages. What changes have we seen in our lifetimes? What bodes well, and what bodes ill for Americas rural future?

Free and open to the public. Attendees will receive a free CD of Bill reading from The Lamoille Stories.
