November 8, 7:00 pm, Author Talk with Bernie Lambek – Author of “Uncivil Liberties“.  Yes, we have this book!  Come in and borrow it or place a hold, so you can read it before the author’s visit!

After a high school student is found dead at the bottom of a rock ledge on the outskirts of Montpelier, Vermont, the community confronts its conflicting beliefs and values—and the truths below the surface. A complex and timely legal mystery, Uncivil Liberties confronts hate speech and free speech, cyberbullying and privacy, religious and sexual freedom, and a community’s many faces of love and loss. In the courtrooms and streets and bedrooms of Montpelier, lawyers and clients and loved ones grapple with moral convictions and prejudices. The novel is imbued with a deep respect for the law as well as for the passionate and irrational human beings who live within, and sometimes beyond, its constraints.

Come in and see what is happening at the Gilmore Gallery this month.  In preparation for her show, “Becoming a Tree”, in October and November, Cecelia Kane is working on a sculpture in the middle of the gallery.  Come in and chat with her as she works.
