WRUV, the student-run radio station at the University of Vermont, is known for its diverse, independent music programming. This week, it’s branching out — to the written word. That’s thanks to the efforts of DJ (“Daddo”), teacher and fiction writer Chris Evans. And coincidentally, the publication is just in time for this weekend’s Burlington Book Festival. On Thursday, September 20, The WRUV Reader debuts with a reception on campus, and readings of stories and poems in the book by UVM profs Philip Baruth, Major Jackson and Antonello Borra, as well as students, recent grads and other Burlington poets.

WRUV Reader: A Vermont Writers Anthology, UVM Student Media/Create Space Independent Publishing Platform, 242 pages. $10 b&w, $25 color. Reception Thursday, September 20, at 6:30 p.m., followed by reading at 7 p.m., at John Dewey Lounge, Old Mill Building, UVM, Burlington. Info,


Plunkett Lake Press, an online publisher that offers “eBOOKS of LIFE WRITING,” is putting American Cassandra on the virtual book stand. Written by Burlington author Peter Kurth, it’s the biography of the country’s arguably most influential female journalist, Dorothy Thompson (1893-1961), who wrote presciently about the rise of the Nazis and on Israel and the Middle East, not to mention the costs of technology and corporate interests, and the increasing militarization of the U.S. Incidentally, Thompson lived in Barnard, Vt., for a time with her second husband, Nobel Prize-winning novelist Sinclair Lewis. Welcome back, Dorothy!

E-book Release: "American Cassandra: The Life of Dorothy Thompson" by Peter Kurth, Plunkett Lake Press. $9.99 on Kindle or Nook.
