Pamela Ahlen early “retired” as a music specialist in South Florida and relocated with her husband to the North Country to experience a sense of community and enjoy the Vermont outdoors in all its seasons. She collects nests and stones and old Valentine’s and is a woods skier and hiker. One of her most memorable trips was hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.  Pamela is program coordinator for Bookstock, a Vermont Literary Festival held each July in Woodstock, Vermont. She organizes literary events for Osher (Lifelong Education at Dartmouth) and has compiled and edited the Anthology of Poets and Writers: Celebrating Twenty-Five Years at Dartmouth. She relishes another sort of adventure—poetry–a more cerebral challenge: daring to write, rooting through the understory. She is the author of the chapbook Gather Every Little Thing (Finishing Line Press).
