EVENT: Don Bredes Author Reading Date: 2015-04-02
City: Cobleigh Public Library Contact: Cindy Karasinski
Phone: (802) 626-54 Contact Email: info@cobleighlibrary.org
Event Description: Author, Don Bredes, will read from his new book, Polly, and the One and Only World! Green Mountain Books and Prints will have books available for purchase! Do you want to know more about the writing process? Don will answer some questions afterwards! Don has been living and working in Wheelock since the 70s. He was a Wallace Stegner Fellow in fiction at Stanford University, and has been awarded fellowships for his writing by the Vermont Council on the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts. His first novel, Hard Feelings, was an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults in 1977 and a 20th Century-Fox film release in 1982. He has written four other novels, including his Hector Bellevance mystery series, Cold Comfort (2001), The Fifth Season (2005), and The Errand Boy (2009). Don’s new novel is set in a much-diminished America called the Christian Protectorates, a poor country ravaged by coastal flooding, drought, and catastrophic social upheaval. It features 15-year-old Polly Lightfoot, a maiden witch of deep heritage and tender ability in the craft. When her identity is exposed, Polly is forced to flee New Florida, where she has taken refuge from a military purge of the country’s infidels, pagans, and followers of false creeds. With the help of her steadfast familiar, a raven named Balthazar, and her brave teenage companion, Leon, Polly undertakes a harrowing journey from the troubled south to the wild north to rejoin her people in Vermont and save her ancient craft from obliteration. Polly and the One and Only World has been greeted with strong praise from coast to coast. In School Library Journal, Genevieve Feldman writes, “Bredes’s . . . messages are clear; they are sketched with a light hand, so as not to overwhelm the story. The complexity of Polly and Leon as characters is revealed as they experience danger and redemption on their journey. Their relationship grows and develops as they do. Their multidimensionality is wonde
