Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 06:30pm - 08:00pm
Join fellow Vermonters in your community to learn about how the state has handled questions of development and progress in the past, and how we might use those lessons to discuss a path forward to the future.

Northern Vermont University professor Paul Searls will open the discussion by reviewing themes and events featured in his newly-published book Repeopling Vermont: The Paradox of Development in the Twentieth Century. He highlights the stories of different communities and their responses to difficult questions as part of his inquiry into how Vermont balanced competing visions for the state in the last century. Following Searls’s presentation, attendees will be invited to share their own perspectives on their communities. How can we use the lessons of history to frame our planning going forward? What is important to preserve, and when is it important to move forward? How can we balance different interests and create a Vermont that works for everyone?

Sponsored by the Vermont Historical Society, in collaboration with the Vermont Department of Libraries and Brooks Memorial Library. The program is free, and the library is accessible to all.
