Will the premature arrival of snow this fall teach me anything? Yet again, I’m annoyed by the snowfall’s massive inconvenience – our driveway was impassable up or down and we had no power for five hours. But its stark beauty reminds me each fall of nature’s majesty and my own insignificance – a lesson I seem to have to re-learn every fall.
Schubart.com Website Makeover
Please take a look at my new website. My old one began to feel monotone and musty like an abandoned attic. I wanted a simpler look and cleaner navigation… love to hear your thoughts.

Mason Singer of Laughing Bear is designing the cover of my new book “The Priest.” What I didn’t know about him is that he has a trenchant sense of humor. This is NOT the cover of my new book, which will be out in January.
Vermont Writer Book Recommendation
I thoroughly recommend Peter Gould’s latest book, “Horse-drawn Yogurt: Stories from Total Loss Farm.” It is a truly wonderful collection of stories from his decade on a hippy farm in Southern Vermont. Click here for my review in Vermont History. I loved this book and can’t recommend it highly enough.
What I’m Reading Now
On the recommendation of a Norwegian fellow we met in Atlanta airport while waiting to come home from a family wedding, I started reading Selma Lagerlöf’s “Jerusalem.” I often read on Kindle and when I downloaded the 1903 novel, realized it was never digitized and have been struggling to read a scan of the original 1903 edition on Kindle – a challenge as the ink has run and I must enlarge and shrink each page as I read it. Great book though.
Fat People Audiobook Coming Soon
I’ve been in the recording booth reading Fat People at Voice Over Vermont. This audiobook will be coming out soon and I’m planning to release a number of my other titles as audio books as well.
