A New Series: One Minute Reviews of
Books by Vermont Authors


Laura now reviews fiction and non-fiction written exclusively by Vermont Authors. Starting in late spring, these reviews will be published bi-weekly in The Deerfield Valley News. As they appear in print some six weeks after they are written, the most recent reviews will be posted in PDF until they are published.
