You get to choose one gift — no price restrictions — for any person you want. The caveat? You have to give it anonymously. What gift would you give, and to whom?
I would give a complete new building on lakefront land to Peter Biello as Director of the Burlington Writers Workshop for a dedicated home for the workshop. The building would be big enough to hold two or three meeting rooms on the first floor, one of which would be a library, and one a living room type space for informal meetings, as well as a complete kitchen and rest rooms. The second floor would have three bedrooms with bathrooms en suite for visiting writers. There would be a laundry on the second floor.
Attached to the building would be a secondary space, including two bedrooms, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and a living room, with a laundry room, to be the dedicated home of the director of the BWW.
In the best of all worlds, it would be a Deltec circular house (http://www.deltechomes.com/) with the addition being circular also. These homes are absolutely drop dead gorgeous, and are at the top of my own wish list!
