Read for the Record (Thursday, October 22 at 6pm)
On October 22, 2015, people across the country will unite to read the children’s book Not Norman, a humorous tale about a child who finds a new friend in an unexpected place. Join a national movement to set a new record for reading the same book on the same day!
ABOUT THE NATIONAL EVENT: Jumpstart is a national organization that works toward the day every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart’s premiere national campaign, Read for the Record, mobilizes millions of children and adults to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience. In 2006, Jumpstart launched the first Read for the Record campaign with the classic story The Little Engine that Could. Jumpstart began the morning of that campaign day on NBC's TODAY Show, which has become a proud tradition. Jumpstart’s supporters helped set a new record for reading the same book on the same day, and in the process, created a national forum for concerned citizens to voice their support of early education.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Norman the goldfish isn’t what this little boy had in mind. He wanted a different kind of pet — one that could run and catch, or chase string and climb trees, a soft furry pet to sleep on his bed at night. Definitely not Norman. But when he tries to trade Norman for a "good pet," things don’t go as he planned. Could it be that Norman is a better pet than he thought? With wry humor and lighthearted affection, author Kelly Bennett and illustrator Noah Z. Jones tell an unexpected — and positively fishy — tale about finding the good in something you didn’t know you wanted.

Andrea Chesman: The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How (Essex) (Saturday, October 24 at 2pm)
Join Andrew Chesman for a book talk, demo, and samples from her new book, The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How : Field-to-Table Cooking Skills.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Andrea Chesman has written more than 20 cookbooks, including Storey’s The Pickled Pantry, Recipes from the Root Cellar, Serving Up the Harvest, and Mom’s Best Crowd-Pleasers. She has also written a number of books on grilling, including the James Beard Award nominee The Vegetarian Grill. She has contributed to many publications including the New York Times, Cooking Light, Vegetarian Times, Fine Cooking, and many regional and local newspapers. She teaches and does cooking demonstrations and classes at fairs, festivals, book events, and garden shows across the United States. She lives in Ripton, Vermont.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Growing vegetables and raising livestock is only the beginning of a successful homestead -- that fresh food goes to waste unless you can properly prepare, cook, and preserve it. Andrea Chesman shows you how to bridge the gap between field and table, covering everything from curing meats and making sausage to canning fruits and vegetables, milling flour, working with sourdough, baking no-knead breads, making braises and stews that can be adapted to different cuts of meat, rendering lard and tallow, pickling, making butter and cheese, making yogurt, blanching vegetables for the freezer, making jams and jellies, drying produce, and much more. You’ll learn all the techniques you need to get the most from homegrown foods, along with dozens of simple and delicious recipes, most of which can be adapted to use whatever you have available.
