Virtual Book Chat: Gary Hillard’s The Buckman Kids

Tuesday Dec 8th 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm Virtual

Brookfield author Gary D. Hillard will join our Zoom chat to discuss his writing and specifically his book The Buckman Kids. Gary has lived in the Randolph/Brookfield for many years. He retired at 57 after twenty-two years as a child and family therapist, and eleven years as a school teacher. He raised four kids, including two girls he adopted out of foster care, and was a foster parent as well. He came away from this work pretty well burned out, and filled with stories, that he thought needed to be told. The Buckman Kids: Toby is an eleven-year-old boy, familiar with his small world of church, farm and family, a life set in the early sixties on a small dairy farm in rural Vermont. His days are made of school, chores, homework, a bath, and then bed. Toby finds this world rocked when the Buckmans, a famously troubled family, move into the old single wide trailer just down the road. Roy Buckman is Toby’s age, but tough as nails, and his kid sister, Trish, is even more powerful for Toby. Copies of the book are available at the Library. Call or email for a Zoom invitation.
