Community Event at the Manchester Community Library: Roxie Zwicker – Vermont Book of the Dead

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


This is an in person event organized by the Northshire Bookstore held at the Manchester Community Library!

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.
