The Winter Reading Issue — 2018



Summer beach reads are fine and sandy. But in Vermont, the most substantive reading takes place in the colder months. For this year's Winter Reading Issue, Charlotte author Stephen P. Kiernan shares an original winter tale of warmth and generosity called "The Bicycle," while Archer Mayor unravels the mysteries of his prodigious crime novels. We also ask master storyteller Sue Schmidt to tell us a great story: hers. A verse on pond skating comes to us from Chard deNiord, Vermont's reigning poet laureate. And we meet two young, award-winning poets: Adrienne Raphel and GennaRose Nethercott, either of whom might one day bear the laureate title. Finally, because nothing goes with a good book like good eats, we ask local chefs to dish on their favorite cookbooks.
