Howard Frank Mosher

Howard Frank MosherHoward Frank Mosher was one of America's most acclaimed writers. His fiction, set in the world of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, chronicles the intertwining family histories of the natives, wanderers, outcasts, and fugitives-white, Native American, escaped slaves fleeing north, French Canadians, and others-who settled in this remote and beautiful place.

Howard Frank Mosher was the author of twelve novels and two travel memoirs. Born in the Catskill Mountains in 1942, Mosher lived in Vermont’s fabled Northeast Kingdom since 1964.

He won many awards for his fiction, including Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Literature Award, the American Civil Liberties Award for Excellence in the Arts, the Vermont Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts, the New England Book Award and, most recently, the 2011 New England Independent Booksellers Association's President's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts. 

Four of his novels, DisappearancesA Stranger in the Kingdom, Where the Rivers Flow North and Northern Borders have been made into acclaimed feature movies by the Vermont independent filmmaker Jay Craven. 

Howard and Phillis, his wife of 51 years, have a grown son and daughter.
