BELLOWS FALLS — Join author Bob Wilson for an introduction to his book, "Vermont . . . Who Knew?: Quirky Characters, Unsung Heroes, Wholesome Offbeat Stuff," at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, at the Rockingham Library, 65 Westminster St.

This nonfiction travel book is in color, and best defined by its 125 profiles, essays and anecdotes, serious and humorous alike. These entries bring together some of the most unique people, places and events — both past and present — the Green Mountain state has to offer. Several of the book's featured subjects will attend and contribute to the event. (U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., wrote the foreword, but likely will not be available.)

A feature of note: Most of the book's stories are followed by links to short YouTube videos — bonus sight-and-sound coverage enriching words just read, providing a multimedia experience. Signed copies will be available at $16.95, a library discount of $2 off the cover price.

Wilson lives in Saxtons River. He is the author of 14 books and a contributor to various magazines. His background includes editorial positions at McGraw-Hill, Houghton Mifflin and Macmillan.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 802-463-4270, email or go to
