Acclaimed Vermont author Phoebe Stone will open her Middlebury studio Saturday afternoon, 2 to 5 p.m., May 21!
We will have refreshments, new artwork on display and Phoebe Stone will read from her new book, Paris for Two, at 3 p.m.
About the book: Stone weaves together the tales of two sisters and two generations in her latest charming middle grade novel, Paris for Two. Twelve-year-old Petunia Beanly and her fourteen-year-old sister Ava are at odds about their family’s move to Paris — though the city seems magical to glamour girl Ava, shy Pet would rather be anywhere else. Pet is trying to get over a broken heart and to add to her romantic drama, the object of her unrequited crush is going to be in Paris with his family, too. But Paris is full of surprises for the Beanly sisters, from anonymous bouquets waiting on their doorstep to the discovery of a mysterious old doll and clues about their grandmother’s life in France during World War II.
