Join the Peace & Justice Center Thursday, August 11 from 6-7pm for a conversation with Greg Guma, author of Restless Spirits and Popular Movements: A Vermont History. This is an in-person event that will be held at Waterfront Park in Burlington across from the Echo Center.
Restless Spirits & Popular Movements revisits Vermont history through memorable events and people who helped create its delicate balance of sovereignty and solidarity, political independence, and mutual aid. It explores the evolution and values of the Green Mountain State through the exploits of revolutionary leaders and feminist pioneers, activists and tycoons, Vermont-born presidents, progressive innovators, and modern trailblazers.
Greg Guma grew up in New York City and moved to Vermont in 1968. Since then he has been a newspaper journalist, magazine editor, college educator, public administrator, community organizer, federal projects director, bookstore owner, self-taught historian, and CEO of the Pacifica Radio Network.
