Meet VT Author & Illustrator Liza Woodruff!

Liza Woodruff will be presenting her new picture book- If It's Snowy and You Know It, Clap Your Paws! "The team behind "Ten on the Sled" has created another irresistible winter-themed romp! This humorous variation on the classic song "If You're Happy and You Know It" introduces a group of adorable animals playing joyfully in the snow--tumbling on the tundra, tasting snowflakes, and building a frosty fort. But can they go with the flow when their wild adventure drifts in a surprising direction? Young readers will laugh and sing along!" Read More »

Meet VT Author Ellen Stimson!

“In a humorous, self-deprecating style, the author examines a variety of questions about her new life: In Vermont, what constitutes an emergency? When can you call 911? With aplomb, Stimson describes her rural Vermont setting, the changing seasons and what drew her to the state…A quick, light book to keep around as a pick-me-up.” --KIRKUS REVIEWS “Get your schadenfreude ready. Stimson’s fish-out-of-water memoir is chockablock with self-deprecating, belly-laughable vignettes..” --Booklist Starred Review “This is a tale to which all of the cliché words absolutely apply: hilarious, heartwarming, rollicking, and, most of all, rich in the real stuff of life.” --Julia Reed, author of But Mama Always Put Vodka in Her Sangria!
