What People are Saying . . .
By bringing together partners from different backgrounds to share in a common mission, the Brattleboro Words Project helps unite the community at a time when there is too much division in the world.Patrick Leahy
The Brattleboro Words Project and the Brattleboro Words Trail it will create highlight the unique literary treasures of the Brattleboro community for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.Wendy Knight
The Brattleboro area has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to its history of book publishing, printing, literature and the like, but few people who live here, much less outsiders, appreciate this history. The Brattleboro Words Project will bring these facts to the fore in an entertaining and creative way that aims to involve the whole community over time.Jerry Carbone
