An Evening with James Rebanks, author of "The Shepherd's Life" & "The Shepherd's View"

1161 Harbor Road
Shelburne, VT

Join us and the Flying Pig Bookstore for an evening with New York Times best-selling author and international phenomenon, James Rebanks. Rebanks is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, The Shepherd’s Life, a fierce and moving defense of a pastoral lifestyle at odds with the pace of modern life. Rebanks will be visiting the Coach Barn to present his stunning new book, The Shepherd’s View: Modern Photographs from an Ancient Landscape. This new publication includes over 80 breathtaking, full-color photographs and chronicles the daily life of the English Lake District shepherding community through the seasons. The evening will include a talk with the author, an audience Q & A, and book signing. Join us in celebrating Rebanks’ visit with live music, local cheese tasting boards, and a cash bar serving locally produced beer, wine, and ciders.

Both The Shepherd’s Life and The Shepherd’s View will be available for sale and signing at a special discount. At the event, ticket holders will each receive a $5 coupon toward the purchase of either hardcover book. Attendees will also receive 10% off any purchase of the paperback edition of The Shepherd's Life.
