Bill Schubart at the Book Lounge

Please join us Thursday evening, May 25th, from 6:00-8:00 PM with Vermont author Bill Schubart

unnamedAbout the evening’s special program 

In my seventy years on earth I’ve seen and learned much. I can track and feel the changes wrought over time to my body and intellect, but must retreat into silence to appreciate the subtle change in social culture over these years. By culture, I don’t mean arts and humanities, I mean what we were taught, what we came to believe, and how we lived and behaved seventy years ago, as opposed to today. Trying to understand and measure this change over two generations is like trying to quantify and qualify the growth of reindeer moss on a granite boulder.


Using Lila & Theron as a frame for an earlier culture, I will engage the audience in a discussion of how social culture and mores have changed for the better and for worse, and answering any questions on writing and publishing.
