Horse Drawn Yogurt Book Signing by Peter Gould

Description: Peter Gould will read from his new book “Horse Drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm” (Green Writer’s Press, 2017). In these true stories based in southern Vermont, locals and newcomers help each other out during a pivotal moment of history. Young people, new to the land, learn how to tend gardens and farms, while also demonstrating against the Vietnam War and calling for peace and justice around the world. Gould’s story “Hey! Don’t Throw That Away!” might be of special interest to residents of Bellows Falls because it features the deconstruction of the old freight depot that was located along Bellows Falls’ railroad tracks.
Gould is also a young adult novelist whose novel, WRITE NAKED, published by Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, won the 2009 National Green Earth Book Award for its ecological content. Peter directs at the New England Youth Theatre and, he's a Visiting Professor of meditation at Brandeis University in the Peace & Justice & Coexistence Department. He founded and still runs the "Get Thee to the Funnery" Youth Shakespeare Camp in the Northeast Kingdom.
