Annual Meeting with Special Guest Speaker Rusty DeWees

Join the Friends of the Stowe Free Library at 4pm in the newly resopened Stowe Free Library on May 9, 2019 for a talk with local actor, producer and writer Rusty DeWees. Rusty was born in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. When still in grade school, his parents moved Rusty and his sister to Stowe, Vermont.

In addition to real-world work in the trades (landscaping, truck driving, concrete contracting and more), he actively pursued and was involved in theatre throughout high school and college. Following follow up on these early experiences, he relocated to New York City where he studied theatre and worked as the personal assistant to William Doyle and family. During this period, Rusty acted in scores of notable roles off-Broadway as well as television, film, and dozens of national (and international) commercials. Following a hunch as well as his muse, Rusty returned to Vermont and developed his "The Logger" comedy character.

Recently, Rusty has expanded his horizon to include writing with two books: Scrawlins, a compilation of Rusty's columns for syndicated and regional newspapers and Scrawlins Two, a sequel. He produces, writes, directs, provides voice talent and often musical accompaniment for radio and television spots throughout New England.

In the past few years, Rusty has been a speaker at corporate and non-profit team motivational events, K-12 and collegiate events and more...weaving rich comedic, entrepreneurial, real life experience into a moving, often spontaneous tapestry that is intriguing to experience as it is familiar and inclusive.

This is a free event and open to the public.
