Title: Between the Lines: What's up for Vermont book lovers
Author: Staff Writer
Publisher: Time Argus
The international border that separates Vermont from Quebec also in a sense unites the communities along it. With increased attention recently on border-related issues such as security and immigration, residents share the challenge of going about their ordinary lives under heightened scrutiny and restrictions.
A book due out this week from Arcadia Publishing, "The Vermont-Quebec Border: Life on the Line," is a visual record of life in the villages, towns and countryside in that unique and special part of the world. The border has played an important role in the history and everyday lives of the people living along its length, both in Vermont and Quebec, and it will undoubtedly continue to shape these communities in the years to come.
The author, Matthew Farfan, is a writer, editor, translator, heritage consultant and collector of early photographs. He has previously written about the Haskell Free Library and Opera House, which straddles the border in Derby Line and Stanstead, Quebec, and about Quebec's Eastern Townships. He lives in Stanstead.
