9:05am Author Lucille Benoit will discuss her Award winning book.." Come Bos " a novel
This is a book that has been a lifetime in the writing. Few have had the milk stool in the barn that I've been priviledged to have for more than 30 years. I have milked good cows, bad ones, clean ones and messy ones, the ones who are the best and brightest and the ones who have died from incurable diseases. Both my work on dairy farms and writing for local newspapers about farms in three Nerw England states form the basis of this fictionalized story of people, places and bovines. This book also is a warning about the consequences of not assuring our food supply stays local, plentiful and safe, and about the need to continue the American heritage of local farms and food.
Primarily, however, this book is a love story to cows. The hope is that it initiates a discussion of how we have treateed them and the farmers who care for them.
