The Unknown Rockwell, October 6th, at The Craftsbury Public Library
Author James "Buddy" Edgerton grew up in Arlington, Vermont, living next door to Norman Rockwell and his family. While they came from two economic ends of the spectrum- the Edgertons, poor dairy farmers and the Rockwells, successful due to Norman's talents- they shared a love of family, a commitment to integrity, and a consideration of one another that created a closeness of friendship that mirrored the physical closeness of their two houses. In his book The Unknown Rockwell, Buddy Edgerton paints a picture of the two families and the values that they held dear.
Buddy Edgerton will be sharing stories and slides of his time as a neighbor to the famed artist at the Craftsbury Public Library. All are welcome to attend his talk on Sunday, October 6 at 3:30PM. Several copies of the book The Unknown Rockwell are available to check out at the library now. Refreshments will be provided. For more information contact the library at 586-9683.
