BENNINGTON BANNER (VERMONT) -- Daley is the author of six nonfiction books, founder of the Green Mountain Writers Conference and Verdant Books, a small, cooperative publishing company and professor emerita from San Francisco State University. She is a longtime journalist for the Rutland Herald, Boston Globe, Time, Life, People and other publications.

Daley’s latest book, Going Up the Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks and Radicals Moved to Vermont, tells the stories of more than 100 members of the counterculture who moved to Vermont in the 1960s and ’70s, along with those of local youths who shared the Sixties values, exploring their impact on the state, and Vermont's impact upon them over the past 50 years. A mother of five, she lives in Rutland with her husband, the writer Chuck Clarino.
