In light of the recent Hurricane Sandy, the Burlington Book Festival gives you a look back to the stormy September day when author Barbara Walsh read from her book, August Gale, which chronicles two stormy tales: one of a deadly Newfoundland hurricane and the fisherman caught out to sea in it; the other, a story of the author’s mysterious grandfather and how his abandonment of his family has left an everlasting impression not only on his son, but also on the author herself.
Read on to find out about Barbara Walsh’s reading at the Burlington Book Festival, told from the perspective of Champlain College professional writing major Taylor Covington.
