VBS Book Discussions

Open to everyone! The Vermont Book Shop (VBS) Book Discussions are held the last Tuesday of every month in the store. VBS Book Discussion titles are always 20% off in-store and online.

Tuesday, May 30, 7 p.m. at The Vermont Book Shop  --  Told with sincerity, humor, and wit, Trespassing Across America is both a fascinating account of one man's remarkable journey along the Keystone XL pipeline and a meditation on climate change, the beauty of the natural world, and the extremes to which we can push ourselves--both physically and mentally.

Tuesday, June 27, 7 p.m. at The Vermont Book Shop  --   In Sweetbitter Stephanie Danler deftly conjures the nonstop and high-adrenaline world of the food industry and evokes the infinite possibilities, the unbearable beauty, and the fragility and brutality of being young and adrift.

Tuesday, July 25, 7 p.m. at The Vermont Book Shop  --  Diametrically opposed arguments: Why I Am Not A Feminist by Jessa Crispin is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice--and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression and We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a personal, eloquently-argued essay that offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness

Tuesday, August 29, 7 p.m. at The Vermont Book Shop  --   Yaa Gyasi's extraordinary novel Homegoing illuminates slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed--and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
