Susan Ouellette, professor of history, has received media attention for her most recent book: Arts writer Brent Hallenbeck in the Burlington Free Press this summer 2017 rounded up books by local authors that might make good summer reads, including Susan’s book, writing: “Susan M. Ouellette, ‘An Extraordinary Ordinary Woman: The Journal of Phebe Orvis, 1820-1830’ (State University of New York Press, Albany) – The history professor at St. Michael’s College in Colchester writes about a woman who kept a detailed journal of her transition from single life to married life in New York and Vermont amid the nation’s evolving economic and social environment.” A report in the Addison County Independent newspaper also told of a presentation Susan made about her book with a reading and book-signing at the Vermont Book Shop in partnership with the Henry Sheldon Museum.
