We are excited to announce the installation of a wonderful new sculpture created by Montpelier artist Ryan Mays, and generously commissioned and donated by Jay and Barbara White. The sculpture makes for a beautiful addition to the Main Street entrance of the library. Be sure to stop by and see it in person!

Author Talk with John-Jean: Synchronicity Bleue
Mario-Jacques meditates and takes zen walks on Mount Stafford. He marches with le Carré Rouge in Montreal and he occupies Wall Street and Times Square. He eats breakfast pizza in Vermont and drinks café au lait at Starbucks on Long Island. But it’s all not so much about the adventures and everyday life of Mario-Jacques, it’s about the coming age.
Like Quebec, where English-speaking people and French-speaking people live together in a virtual nation within a nation, this is a book where two languages, English and French, live together within the story. Read this book and find out what it’s like in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, where people mix their usage of English and French as carefully and as unconsciously as they mix their café et crème.
Copies of the book will be available for sale and for signing.
