Ellen Stimson Book Talk and Signs Mud Season

Ellen Stimson will discuss and sign her book Mud Season:  How One Woman’s Dream of Moving to Vermont, Raising Children, Chickens, and Sheep & Running the Old Country Store Pretty Much Led to One Calamity After Anothe.

In Mud Season, Stimson chronicles her transition from urban living to rickety Vermont farmhouse— swapping high heels for muck boots; raising chickens and sheep; fighting off skunks, foxes, and bears; and making a few friends and allies in a tiny town steeped in history, local tradition, and that dyed-in-the-wool Vermont “character.” Much more than just about how Ellen and her family adjusted to their new surroundings, Mud Season is full of clever life lessons about living with intention, taking risks, embracing failure, and finding humor in everything. It’s a witty, candid, and touching memoir about how one woman took charge of her happiness by taking charge of her life.
