Craftsbury Vermont Public Library ~ Book Sale July 13-14, 2013

HUGE Book Sale this Weekend! July 13-14, 2013

The Craftsbury Public Library’s annual huge Book Sale is even bigger than ever this year.  The library has received more donations than ever before, with over 9,000 books sorted and ready for the sale.  Books cover a wide range of topics including new popular fiction, mysteries, classics, antiquarian, cook books, travel, Vermont, how-to, gardening, history, children’s books and much more.  Most books range in price from $1-$3, and there is a special antiquarian section with beautiful rare and collectible books.

Because of the huge number of books for sale this year, the library has decided to try something new.  Our regular book sale will be held on Saturday, July 13 from 10AM-4PM, in conjunction with Antiques and Uniques.  This year there will be a second day of sales on Sunday, July 14, with books on sale for half price (excepting the antiquarian books).  All proceeds from the sale go directly to the library. We are seeking volunteers for helping with setup, sales, and cleanup.  If you are available to help out for a time slot, please let us know by signing up at the library, or giving us a call.  Thank you!

July 17, 2013: Book Artists of Craftsbury

On any given day, the Craftsbury Public Library houses over 15,000 books on its shelves, but on Wednesday, July 17 the books on display will be from a whole different league.  Craftsbury is home to an unusual number of artisans who create and restore fine books.  Tom Twetten of Craftsbury Antiquarian Books, Carol Ceraldi of Graham Hill Bindery, Chris McDonnell, and Kristin Urie will tell us about the work they do and show us examples of their work, including works in progress so that we can see the stages in creating an artisan binding.  Please join us at 7PM to view their work and learn about how it is created.

July 28, 2013: Author Visit- Christina Shea

Author Christina Shea visits the Craftsbury Public Library on Sunday, July 28th at 3PM.  A faculty member in the MFA program in Creative Writing at Lesley University, Christina is the author of two novels, Moira’s Crossing and Smuggled.  An intimate look at the effects of history on an individual life, Smuggled spans four decades in a woman’s quest to regain her identity from the conflicts that defined her youth.  In the final winter of the Second World War, five-year-old Éva Farkas is hidden by her mother in a flour sack and smuggled across the Hungarian border to Romania. Her aunt and uncle rename her Anca and forbid her to speak Hungarian ever again.  As years pass, an unquenchable spirit emerges, full of passion and imagination even as a uniquely twisted brand of Communist oppression threatens to derail Anca at every turn.  Smuggled is a fearless and intimate account of one woman’s transformation in the wake of violent history, and a viscerally reflective tale about the basic need for love without claims.      Christina will read from Smuggled and speak about her experiences researching and writing her two novels.

The Book Shed Outpost ~ Books are a-Happening in Benson Vermont! – and Tacos too!

By Joe Trenn, The Book Shed

From New York to Los Angeles through London, Moscow and Tokyo, pop-up stores have become the new big thing in retail. This summer the phenomenon comes to Rutland County when Benson gets it first pop-up store, The Book Shed Outpost.

Joe Trenn at The Book Shed

 

Open most weekends (weather permitting) in July and August and possibly through the fall foliage season the Outpost will be located next to West Coast Tacos on the corner of Route 22A and Mill Pond Rd. A wide assortment of books reflective of the stock available at the original Book Shed will be carried as well as a variety of discount books. The Book Shed, Rutland County’s oldest used book store, has been operating for 17 years in the village of Benson. According to the owner, Joseph Trenn, his biggest difficulty is in getting travelers to make the turn from 22A and drive the 3/4 of a mile to his location in the village. He is hoping that the conveniently located Outpost will help remedy that.

West Coast Tacos, an LA inspired taco stand, was opened this spring by Jan and Tim Bird of Benson just a few miles from New England’s west coast, the shores of Lake Champlain. The yellow corn tortillas for their various tacos and burritos are cooked on site. They offer a signature nine inch corn tortilla which is custom made for them. Rounding out the menu are hand cut nachos, burritos and a delicious steak and cheese sandwich. As an authentic accompaniment to their food the Birds make every effort to carry a cane sugar variety of Coca-Cola made in Mexico (“Hecho en Mexico para refresco”) – the fabled “Mexican Coke” is what we all drank years ago before the advent of high fructose corn syrup. West Coast Tacos is open everyday from 11-8 pm. Phone is (802) 236-1018.

It is shaping up to be a busy summer on this corner of Benson seven miles north of U.S. Route 4 in Fair Haven.  Books and Tacos on a summer day? – who can resist!
