1 logo Author Tyler Mason Reads at the Jeudevine Library
Time: 7 PM
Price: Free
Location: Jeudevine Memorial Library, 93 North Main Street, Hardwick
Description: Author Tyler Mason will read from his book Deep Within, stories of a faded heritage on Thursday, November 1st at 7 PM at the Jeudevine Memorial Library in Hardwick. At the age of eleven Mason became a deer hunter. In a chaotic world Tyler finds refuge in the woods and mountains - hiking, photographing, and hunting. He has learned to respect the wildlife and all God's creatures and take good care of the land. The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth. This is his first published book and it emphasizes these ideas and describes hunting as a way of life. Tyler Mason is a sixth generation native Vermonter on the French side alone, and maybe longer on his Native American side. He has lived in the town of Albany, Vermont since birth. He started to write (scribble) before even learning how to read. Teachers in school in his younger years used to say that he would never be able to read well. What a pleasant surprise! By the time he was eleven he was putting together fictional stories and when he was fifteen he wrote a book that turned out to be 117 pages. That work has not yet been published. Before completing his schooling Mason became involved in the FFA - Formerly known as Future Farmers of America. He went as far as becoming Vermont state FFA secretary for two years and achieving his American degree which is the highest honor you can receive in the National FFA organization. Mason now still lives in Albany, aside from that he tries to get a little logging done and help out farmers and land owners who need tasks completed on their land. Tyler is a member of the Albany Volunteer Fire Department. He tries to do some writing on the side!
Extra Info: Library Director, Lisa Sammet says, “I really enjoyed this book. He evokes the land and people of the Northeast Kingdom with deep understanding and compassion. These are intricate tales not just of hunting but of family, and nature and the deep soul. His voice has the timber of old Vermont, an accent that is also fading away. I hope many people come to hear Tyler read.” Come and share some of your stories of hunting, logging and farming! There will be refreshments. For more information call the Jeudevine Library at 472-5948.

A deceptively simple look, presented lightly and with humor, at aging, transitions, loss and family, the film doesn't hit the audience over the head with the message. Filled with typical, understated rural and small town humor and restraint, 'Farmer of the Year' captures the sense of real life, location and spirit of the rural America with a unique combination of homegrown and Hollywood. 'Farmer' of the Year has been selected to screen at film festivals across the country, winning 'Audience Choice Awards' at the Minneapolis St. Paul, Sedona and Woods Hole International Film Festivals.
