Madeleine Kunin discusses Coming of Age

Madeleine Kunin discusses Coming of Age
Description:

Northshire Bookstore and Manchester Community Library are thrilled to welcome back former VT governor Madeleine May Kunin to share her new memoir that is not only about the physical and emotional tolls of aging, but is also an honest and positive look at aging and how it has effected her life.

Many readers are already familiar with Madeleine Kunin, the former three-term governor of Vermont, who served as the deputy secretary of education and ambassador to Switzerland under President Bill Clinton. In her newest book, a memoir entitled Coming of Age: My Journey to the Eighties, the topic is aging, but she looks well beyond the physical tolls and explores the emotional ones as well. And she has had an extraordinary life: governor, ambassador, feminist, wife, mother, professor, poet, and much, much more.

Time: 11/9/18 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Location: Northshire Bookstore, Manchester Center

Bread and Roses, Too
by Katherine Patterson

“Bread and Roses, Too” is a novel of historical fiction that tells the story of the 1912 “Bread and Roses” strike in the Lawrence, Massachusetts textile mills through the eyes of an Italian-American girl and a runaway boy. The novel relates the journey of Rosa, who, along with Jake and other children, are sent temporarily out of harm’s way to foster families in Barre, Vermont, as children actually were during the strike.
