Horse Drawn Yogurt, July Book

Peter Gould spent the 1970's living at Total Loss Farm, a commune in Guilford, Vermont. Horse Drawn Yogurt is a memoir of stories from Total Loss Farm.

Peter and his fellow communers were a part of the back to earth movement. Protests, writings and marches were not ending the war in Viet Nam nor improving civil rights. Disappointed and disallusioned, Peter and his friends sought to establish a utopian life of love, sharing and creativity that seemed attainable in southern Vermont.

Horse Drawn Yogurt has inspired Guilford Free Library to create a Guilford Reads summer program with various events around town that highlight the book and its captivating stories. As part of Guilford Reads, Peter will be visiting the Talk About Books group on Wednesday, July 19 at 6:30 to talk about his book with us.
