All programs are at the Joslin Library unless otherwise indicated. 

April 27th at 1pm join Cameron Russell and Elias Bennett as they share their epic adventure biking 12,000 miles through the Americas through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru Ecuador and the jungles of Central America before reaching Vermont 11 months later. Throughout their trip they documented stories, shared acts of kindness and the humanity they witnessed along the way. Cam and Eli will present a stunning slideshow, share stories and host a question and answer session.

May 4th Deb Helfrich returns for another presentation of “Woof! What is the Dog Saying?” Her last presentation was fun for all ages, engaging and drummed up so much interest, we are hosting her presentation again! Learn what your dog’s body language really means and how best to communicate with your furry friend. Starts at noon.

SATURDAY MAY 25th at 2:00PM join Vermonter, author and storyteller Bill Torrey for an  entertaining evening as he shares true stories of his life growing up in rural Vermont during the ‘60’s.


Bill has won four Moth Story Slams in Burlington and New York’s Black Fly Story Slam. He’s performed with four other storytellers from around the world at the prestigious Wilbur Theater in Boston. Bill wowed the sold-out crowd of 1200 with his story of his challenging life spent in the woods of Vermont. 

His first book, The Ta Ta Weenie Club, was released in the fall of 2016.   His second book, Working Out of It, will be coming out in 2019.
