Author Stimson to sign copies of new book at Tatnuck Bookseller

Mud SeasonWestborough – Ellen Stimson, author of “Mud Season,” will be signing copies of her new book Sunday, June 22, from 12 – 2 p.m., at Tatnuck Bookseller.

After a getaway in gorgeous rural Vermont – its mountains ablaze in autumnal glory, its Main Streets quaint and welcoming – Ellen Stimson and her family make up their minds even before they get back to St. Louis: “We’re moving to Vermont!” The reality, they quickly learn, is a little muddier than they’d imagined, but, happily, worth all the trouble.

In self-deprecating and hilarious fashion, Mud Season chronicles Stimson's transition from city life to rickety Vermont farmhouse. When she decides she wants to own and operate the old-fashioned village store in idyllic Dorset, pop. 2,036, one of the oldest continually operating country stores in the country, she learns the hard way that “improvements” are not always welcomed warmly by folks who like things just fine the way they’d always been.

Follow the author to her wit's end and back, through her full immersion into rural life-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.”

All are welcome to stop in to meet the author. Tatnuck Bookseller is located at 18 Lyman St., the Westborough Shopping Center.
