Howard Frank Mosher in Newport

Goodrich Memorial Library

Howard Frank Mosher, author of Marie Blythe, appeared at the Woodknot Bookstore in Newport on Friday, June 29. As soon as I heard of his appearance, Wingnut and I ran up there. I bought his new book, On Kingdom Mountain, and he signed it.

Orleans County Courthouse

Mr. Mosher and his wife both know D and M from school. He didn't remember me from last May when he signed Marie Blythe for me. But he repeated the story of Marie as being true and she is still alive in Brownington.

Orleans District Courthouse

He had returned the night before from a ten bookstore tour in Massachusetts and the next day he was leaving for a one hundred city tour. He didn't want to go because the weather in Vermont is the most perfect that you can find anywhere in the world in the winter.

Wingnut and I took the time to take photos in Newport for this post. The courthouses are the scene of Midwives by Chris Bohjalian, an Oprah Book. The view of Lake Memphremagog from the courthouse is mentioned in one scene.
