Gov. Kunin also served as Undersecretary of Education and as the U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland during the Clinton administration.

Joining Gov. Kunin will be Rep. Jason P. Lorber of Burlington, who will act as Master of Ceremonies, and Comedian Josie Leavitt of Charlotte. Appetizers and desserts will be provided by Catering By Dale, and door prizes will be given away to guests. The Flying Pig Bookstore of Shelburne will supply copies of Gov. Kunin's book for sale, and Gov. Kunin will be available to autograph them.
