It took more than Ethan Allen! Superior Court Judge Robert Mello will discuss and sign his new full-length biography about Moses Robinson—perhaps Vermont's most important founding father you never heard of!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A former trustee of the Vermont Historical Society and a current Superior Court judge, Robert Mello has had a life-long fascination with American history and the law, especially the early history of Vermont.

ABOUT THE BOOK:Moses Robinson appears in books about early Vermont history, but as a minor character in the story of the founding of the state, and with little substance. In this full-length biography—deeply researched in primary sources like state papers, legislative proceedings, court records, and other government documents—Robert Mello restores Robinson to his rightful place as one of the most significant figures in the founding of Vermont and the development of its state institutions.
