It is with great sadness that we reflect upon the news of beloved Northeast Kingdom author Howard Frank Mosher's death this past Sunday, the 29th of January. Over the years, we were fortunate to have recorded Mr. Mosher reading from his novels, sharing stories of life in the Northeast Kingdom, and talking about what it means to be a writer. We have digitized and made available 4 of these recordings, as seen below.
