Rutland Library to Host Author of ‘Vermont Wild’ Series
Megan Price, author of ‘Vermont Wild, Adventures of Fish and Game Wardens’ will appear at the Rutland Free Library on Saturday, June 11, from2:30 to 4 p.m. to sign and dedicate books for those wanting a special gift for their Dad or favorite grad, or maybe just a fun summer read for themselves. Price’s four volumes of true, always humorous and sometimes harrowing, game warden stories have proven a hit with everyone from nine to 99. Encounters with ravenous bears, charging moose and a long list of wily poacher encounters have made these books bestsellers.
A former reporter and state legislator, Price began by collecting and writing the stories of retired warden Eric Nuse of Johnson. When the public clamored for more, she added new wardens and deputies from other parts of the state. Her most recent volume contains stories from Pawlet, Wells and Granville, N.Y, told by retired warden Norm Brown and his deputies. Price’s appearance at the Rutland Library offers a rare opportunity for fans to hear some stories behind the stories. The event is free and open to all; books will be available to purchase.
The Vermont Wild series of four books has been featured on Vermont Public Radio, twice earned a mention on the nationally recognized Publisher’s Weekly website, and has sold thousands of copies. The books feature water-resistant covers and easy-to-read print to encourage readers to stuff them into a backpack. The books are available at all Vermont bookstores, Kinney Drugs and many shops statewide.
