In Your Own Backyard

The Friends of Stowe Free Library Present

In Your Own Backyard:

Bill Schubart's "Lila & Theron"

Discussion on Changes in Vermont Rural Culture

Join the Friends of the Stowe Free Library on November 16, 2017 at 7pm in the Community Room at the Stowe Free Library when Bill Schubart discusses his new book Lila & Theron.  Lila & Theron is a simple love story about a Vermont couple living with little beyond each other, their land, gardens and animals.  This love story portrays a hardscrabble life in which gratitude, hard work and love is everything - raising difficult questions about the nature of today's poverty, homelessness, addiction and consumerist culture.  

Bill is very active in the community  - and not only as a speaker and writer!  He has been Chair of such entities as the Vermont College of Fine Arts, Vermont Folklife Center, Vermont Journalism Trust (dba, Vermont Arts Council (twice), Vermont Board of Libraries, Circus Smirkus, Vermont Business Roundtable, Vermont Public Radio, and the University of Vermont Medical Center.  He has been the Director of such entities as the VT Symphony Orchestra, VT Community, and the ACLU – Vermont Chapter.
