Young Writers on Stage: Abhi Dodgson

Nov 28, 2012

The Young Writers Project and Vermont Public Radio presented Millennial Writers on Stage at the Burlington Book Festival on Saturday, September 22 in Burlington. Abhi Dodgson of South Hero is one of 16 students who presented their work.

Abhi is home schooled and is in the fifth grade. He says he loves reading, writing and playing the piano. When I'm writing I feel like I'm in another world. I have seen over 20 lambs be born on my farm. I can recognize all 18 of my sheep from any angle, and sometimes I get to go for a ride on my favorite sheep.

(Host) Today is Thanksgiving, and whether you're a vegetarian or an omnivore, chances are good that you're about to gather with family and friends for this annual Harvest celebration. It's also a day when writer and commentator Diana Lischer-Goodband will be thinking about the wild adventures she's had while living with turkeys on her family farm in Dummerston.
