Castle Freeman At Rockingham Library

On Wednesday October 7 at 7 p.m. the Rockingham Free Public Library (RFPL) welcomes one of our local literary treasures, author and essayist Castle Freeman.

An award-winning author of four novels, a book of short stories, and a collection of essays, as well as a regular contributor to The Old Farmer's Almanac since 1982, Freeman lives in Newfane.

In his 25 years at the venerable - and infamous - Old Farmer's Almanac, his essays come from a very personal life-long interest in wildlife and the outdoors, gardening, history and especially rural New England, the wealth of its primal beauty, peculiarities and personalities.

His fourth and latest book All That I Have, which one critic calls a "pleasantly wicked novel" is, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer, "an absorbing yarn from a writer shrewd with the delayed reveal and deft with his lean, tidy sentences. The novel's 20 short chapters fit as snugly as Lincoln logs, and its dialogue zings with a sly Elmore Leonard lilt."

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls.
