Mitchell to Recount Memories of Hardwick’s Past

HARDWICK – Author and Hardwick native Joyce Slayton Mitchell will share passages from and sign copies of her memoir, “Landscape Memories: A Vermont Village 1930s-1950s” on Tuesday, July 12, beginning at 7 p.m. The Galaxy Bookshop is hosting this event under the pavilion at Atkins Field in Hardwick.

Joyce Slayton Mitchell was born and raised in Hardwick before traveling the world. She has lived in France, New York City, and China, among other places in her lifetime, and has written about her experiences in previous books. Mitchell is also the author of several picture books based on the lives and work of people in Hardwick. “Landmark Memories” revisits a version of Hardwick that still lives on in the memories of some, but is largely unknown to younger generations and newcomers to the area.

Bring a comfortable folding chair and dress appropriately for the evening’s weather. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 472-5533 or visit for a full schedule of events.
