Guest: Karen Crouse, Author, “Norwich: One Tiny Vermont Town’s Secret to Happiness and Excellence” “The road to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, runs through a pocket square of a town" in rural Vermont. That’s the first line of New York Times reporter Karen Crouse’s new book “Norwich.” Somehow that tiny Vermont town of 3,000 people has managed to put an athlete on every US Winter Olympics team but one since 1984. There must be something in the water, right? But the truth is far more inspiring, as Crouse tells it.
