King Arthur Flour Motor Coach Tour

This month we delve into bread and culture as we introduce this year’s Vermont Humanities Council’s Vermont Reads Program, featuring the book Bread and Roses, Too by award-winning Vermont author Katherine Paterson. We’ll kick off the month with a bus tour to King Arthur Flour in Norwich, Vt., for a tour, baking demo and shopping! Have lunch on your own at King Arthur’s café or bakery. On the way we’ll watch Collective Voices, a 20-minute documentary about the famous 1912 Lawrence, Ma., textile strike. We’ll have copies of the book for you to read on the motor coach. Advanced registration with full payment required.

Vermont Reads: Bread and Roses, Too

Vermont Humanities Council

Adults and young adults are invited to join the Library’s Tea Read Book Club on Nov. 13 to discuss the book Bread and Roses, Too, by Vermont author Katherine Paterson (books provided). The story of the 1912 “Bread and Roses” strike in the Lawrence, Mass., textile mills is seen through the eyes of a young Italian-American girl and a runaway boy. Rosa and Jake, along with other children of the strike, are sent temporarily out of harm’s way to a foster family in Barre, Vt. The second session on Nov. 17 will be held at the Slate Valley Museum in Granville, N.Y., to view exhibits that interpret the immigration experience of many families who moved to the local area to work in the slate industry.
