With the one year anniversary of President's Trump's inauguration looming, I'm really honored to support efforts to bring The Full Vermonty: Vermont in the Age of Trump from the terrific Green Writers Press out into the wider world. The Full Vermonty is a collection of essays and cartoons from journalist Bill Mares and cartoonist Jeff Danziger, and leading progressive writers and thinkers from across the state, all of who are focused on trying to answer the following question: "What the hell do we do now?" Their answers, will make you laugh and cry, and not necessarily in that order (and yes, I'm liberally paraphrasing Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry's here). Please let me know if you have any questions and/or are interested in reviewing the book, interviewing the authors and/or publisher, writing think pieces, or generally engaging in the hype we're looking to generate for this truly unique, wonderful and timely collection. For much more on all things The Full Vermonty please do go here. And with all that said, let me leave you with this final note:
"Vermont towns may be small, but (unlike Trump’s hands) they are not clenched in anger. Rather, they are resisting with characteristic wit and charm. In The Full Vermonty: Vermont in the Age of Trump, edited by Bill Mares and Jeff Danziger, some of Vermont’s most famous voices ask, “What the hell do we do now?” The collection of essays, published by Green Writers Press in Brattleboro, Vermont, explores how Vermont, a small, rural state with a progressive history, must reckon with what it means to exist in Trump’s America. But “The Full Vermonty” isn’t just for Vermont readers— it is for anyone wondering how to resist, persevere, and remain hopeful in the age of Trump."
