Local Author Event & Benefit is December 3rd, 630pm

Say good-bye to Stick Season and prepare for the coming snow with a cozy gathering of local food and agricultural authors, who will read excerpts of their original work on Friday, December 3rd at 6:30pm at St. John's Episcopal Church on 39th West Street in Hardwick, VT.


Caroline Abels is the editor of Vermont's Local Banquet a quarterly magazine about local food and farming. She lives in Montpelier and writes primarily about animal agriculture.

Bethany M. Dunbar of West Glover, is an editor at the Chronicle, a weekly newspaper in Barton.  She has a background in dairy farming and is working on a collection of photographs and essays about farmers and food in the Northeast Kingdom.

Ben Hewitt has seven cows, four pigs, six sheep, one wife, and two children. He lives in Cabot and likes cheese very much.

Julia Shipley, a writer and subsistence farmer in Craftsbury, is collaborating with Andrew Miller-Brown of Plowboy Press on a collection titled, Bales of Prose. She recently received a Creation Grant from the Vermont Arts Council to complete a book of agricultural essays.


This event is a benefit for the Hardwick Area Food Pantry (non-perishable food item) as well as the Center for an Agricultural Economy's Food Access Fund. We appreciate any contribution you can make.
