“The Bend in the Road” by Yvonne Daley.  Yvonne is a resident of Rutland and San Francisco. One of the many hats she wears is as an associate professor of journalism at San Francisco State University but most of us remember her as a reporter for the Rutland Herald and director of the Green Mountain Writers Conference in Tinmouth.

Her latest book, “The Bend in the Road,” is the story of the Lenny Burke foundation – the farm, Emma’s place and, of course, Lenny and his amazing life’s journey.

The Wallingford Historical Society will host the book launch on Wednesday, December 17th, at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall Museum.
