Join us along with the Manchester Historical Society as author Mark Bushnell presents his book "Hidden History of Vermont."

Vermont's history is marked by fierce independence, generosity of spirit and the saga of human life along its steep slopes and fertile valleys. Meet the widow who outwitted Tories and may have spied for the Green Mountain Boys. Encounter the family who gained a national following by summoning spirits. Discover why one governor opposed women's suffrage and how that may have involved spirits of another sort. Visit an island retreat where Harpo Marx cheated at croquet and satirist Dorothy Parker wore nothing but a garden hat. Historian Mark Bushnell offers a glimpse of the Green Mountain State rarely seen.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Mark Bushnell worked for a dozen years as an editor for Vermont newspapers. Realizing that writers have more fun than editors, he began freelancing. Since 2002, he has written regularly about Vermont history, first for the Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus, and more recently a weekly column for VTDigger, a statewide news website. He is the author of Discover Vermont! The Vermont Life Guide to Exploring Our Rural Landscape and It Happened in Vermont. He has also contributed chapters to Howard Dean: A Citizen's Guide to the Man who Would Be President, and Lake Champlain: An Illustrated History. He lives in central Vermont with his wife, Susan Clark, and son, Harrison.
