Korongo No. 2: Homebound Still PDF
As a long, dark winter settled over Vermont, residents of the White River Valley reached out to friends and neighbors, isolated by the pandemic of 2020–2021, with this collection of stories, poems, and pictures, their overall theme a message of hope. Here you'll find a mother-daughter journal about an Abenaki garden that provides food for tribal elders, a photo essay about revamping a restaurant in the middle of a pandemic, greetings from former residents who have moved away, and stories about rediscovering simple pleasures and old pastimes. "Homebound Still," volume 2 in the Korongo series, is a celebration of community spirit in small-town Vermont during hard times. Also available in paperback ($15).
