CAVENDISH, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont town that was the home of exiled Soviet dissident author Alexander Solzhenitsyn (sol-zhuh-NEET’-suhn) is still working on a permanent home for a museum dedicated to him.

Last year, the Universalist/Unitarian Convention of Vermont and Canada voted to deed the Stone Church to the town of Cavendish for use as a museum focused on the Nobel Prize-winning writer and activist.

The Eagle Times reports ( the exhibit is at the Cavendish Historical Society Museum. It’s to be moved to the church following finalization of the deed and renovations.

Solzhenitsyn lived in Cavendish from 1977-1994 and died in Russia in 2008. He’s known for “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” and “The Gulag Archipelago,” based on years in prison and labor camps for criticizing Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.
