Legacy of a Vermont Sportswriter:
Author Presentation and Q&A

Presented in partnership with Bridgeside Books  |  July 27, 2023  | Steele Community Room

Vermont author Brendan Buckley presented his research into the life story of sportswriter Dave Morse (1937-2015), who wrote the weekly sports column "The Morse Code" in Hardwick for two decades and was posthumously inducted into the Vermont Sports Hall of Fame.

Dave Morse grew up in Waterbury and graduated class of 1956 from Waterbury High School. There were many in the audience who went to school with Dave or had met him through sports programs and events. 

Buckley's debut book, The Morse Code: Legacy of a Vermont Sportswriter, is available at Bridgeside Books.
