Peter Gould discusses "Horse-Drawn Yogurt" at Landmark College


Date & Time: 
Feb 12 2018 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

The Landmark College Spring 2018 Academic Speaker Series Opens
with Peter Gould on Monday, February 12, at 7 p.m. in the Brooks M. O’ Brien
auditorium, located in the East Academic Building.

Gould’s talk will draw on material from his recent book, “Horse-Drawn
Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm” (Green Writers Press), a collection of
true stories of a young man’s life on a Vermont commune in the 1970s. Gould
will read passages from the book and discuss how and where we see the legacy of
the back-to-the-land movement in today’s society.

Author/artist/educator Peter Gould was the recipient of the 2016
Arts Education Award from the Vermont Arts Council. He is known in nearly every
town in Vermont for his “Get Thee to a Funnery” theater education camps, and is
one-half of the internationally renowned physical comedy and political theater
duo, Gould & Stearns, who have performed more than 3,500 times on three
continents. He is on the faculty at New England Youth Theater and has taught
for ten summers at the Vermont Governor’s Institute on the Arts.

“Horse-Drawn Yogurt” is Gould’s first work of non-fiction.
Previous books include the novels “Burnt Toast” (Alfred A. Knopf), and “Write
Naked” (Farrar, Strauss & Giroux), which won the 2009 National Green Earth
Book Award in recognition of its strong environmental content. More about Gould
and links to purchase his books can be found at
