Madeleine Kunin to sign copies of ‘Coming of Age’ memoir in Middlebury — NEW LOCATION

UPDATED MIDDLEBURY — Former governor Madeleine Kunin will share, discuss and sign her new memoir, “Coming of Age: My Journey to the Eighties,” on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m., at Middlebury College, Axinn Center Room 229 (originally announced as at the Vermont Book Shop). Ruth Hardy, candidate for the Vermont Senate, will introduce Kunin as part of the event, which is free and open to the public.
A book signing and reception will follow Kunin’s talk at 8 p.m. in the Axinn Center’s Abernethy Room.
Many readers are already familiar with Madeleine Kunin, the former three-term governor of Vermont, who served as the deputy secretary of education and ambassador to Switzerland under President Bill Clinton.
In her newest book, the topic is aging, but she looks well beyond the physical tolls and explores the emotional ones as well. The book takes a close and incisive look at what it is like to grow old. It is a memoir, yet most important of all, it is an honest and positive look at aging and how it has affected her life. And she has had an extraordinary life: governor, ambassador, feminist, wife, mother, professor, poet, and much, much more. 
Governor Kunin has written three previous books: “Living a Political Life,” “The New Feminist Agenda: Defining the Next Revolution for Women, Work, and Family” and “Pearls, Politics and Power.” She has more energy than two 40-year-olds. She is currently James Marsh Professor-at-Large at the University of Vermont, where she gives guest lectures on feminism and women and politics. She also serves on the board of the Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), a nongovernmental organization that she founded in 1991, and she recently launched Emerge Vermont to encourage and support women in politics. She lives in Shelburne.
