Bennington Farmers’ Market Celebrates Local Authors and Books

Bennington Farmers' Market
10am-1pm, Saturday, 4th June, 2022

The Bennington Farmers’ Market will put the spotlight on local authors for the first time with a special event to take place during the market on Saturday, June 4, with four fantastic local writers and illustrators on hand to share their works and sign copies of their books.

Attending authors are Judith D. Schwartz, who tells stories to explore and illuminate scientific concepts and cultural nuance; poet Camille Guthrie; children’s picture book author and illustrator Anne Hunter; and fiction writer Genevieve Plunkett. Schwartz will read from one of her books at approximately 11 a.m. The authors’ books will be available for purchase and signing.

“We wanted to use our platform for local to expose customers to other facets of our community, and we thought local writers would be great way to start,” says board president, Emily Gold. “There are so many talented authors in the area that it was hard to decide who to reach out to. We’re hoping it’s a huge success, and that we can do a similar event later in the year.”
