Author Roxie Zwicker Presents: Vermont Book of the Dead: Graveyard Legends and Lore

February 2 @ 6:00pm-7:00pm

This event is in partnership with the Northshire Bookstore. Vermont’s hills hold the echoes of a spirited past. Author and tour guide Roxie Zwicker explores these historic and legendary graveyards and will share haunting stories and wandering ghosts from throughout the state. Haunting stories and wandering ghosts are found in numerous burial places from the Riverside Cemetery in Burlington to the Green Mount Cemetery in Montpelier. The Bowman mausoleum in Cuttingsville contains some heartbreaking symbolism. Throughout the state, disturbing tales of mountain madness, murder and “vampires” can be found carved in stone. Discover the graves of humble farmers with independent spirit like Justin Morgan, Ethan Allen, and “Snowflake” Bentley who changed the course of history. The ancient gravestones in Rockingham were once removed and put on exhibit in New York City, while innovative gravestone carvers from Barre to Bennington left artistic interpretations of death to awe and inspire.

Books will be for sale at the event thanks to Northshire Bookstore.
