Vt. Town's Residents Remember Solzhenitsyn

Residents of Cavendish, Vt., say the town was inundated by people — especially members of the media — who wanted directions to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's home.

The Russian Nobel Prize winner died over the weekend. Solzhenitsyn settled in the town in 1977 after being deported from the Soviet Union.
