Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls welcomes Vermont author Joseph Citro and iIllustrator Stephen Bissette on Friday, November 20 at 7 p.m. to discuss their new book, Vermont Monster Guide.
Afraid of the dark? You will be after you read this illustrated guide to the fantastic swimming, crawling, flying, and slithering denizens of Vermont's dark side. Though not widely acknowledged, the Green Mountain state is home to more winged wonders, wet weirdoes, and crypto creatures than any other state in the country. You probably know about Champ, the elusive monster of Lake Champlain. But what about Northfield's Pigman? And Richford's The Awful?
Citro, respected monster hunter, brings to light over 60 Vermonsters, many captured in exquisite, ghoulish detail by the pen, brush, and ink of Bissette. The authors' previous collaboration, The Vermont Ghost Guide, is a popular favorite and the perfect companion to this volume.
Citrohas written numerous novels, collections of arcane folklore, and ghost guides chronicling the dark side of Vermont and New England. Bissette has been a professional cartoonist, illustrator and artist for over 30 years and is a teacher at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction. He is best known for his award-winning collaboration with writer Alan Moore on DC Comics' Saga of the Swamp Thing.
