Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA), in partnership with Bear Pond Books, is hosting a special event honoring the late Howard Frank Mosher and his final book release, POINTS NORTH, at Alumni Hall, College Street, Montpelier, VT.
We'll welcome writers Richard Russo, Don Bredes, Chris Bohjalian, Garret Keizer, Robin MacArthur, Thomas Christopher Greene, and Howard's son Jake Mosher.
Bear Pond Books will be on hand to sell POINTS NORTH and will also be carrying a selection of all of the attending writers' books.
This event is free and open to the public.
About the Book:
"In POINTS NORTH, completed just weeks before his death, Mosher presents a brilliant, lovingly-evoked collection of stories that center around the Kinneson family, ranging over decades of their history in the Kingdom. From a loquacious itinerant preacher who beguiles the reticent farmers and shopkeepers of a small New England town, to a proposed dam that threatens the river that Kinneson men have fished for generations, the scandalous secret of a romance and its violent consequences, and a young man’s seemingly fruitless search for love―POINTS NORTH is a full-hearted, gently-comic, and beautifully-written last gift to the readers who treasure Howard Frank Mosher."
