*DIGITAL* The Counterculture’s Impact on Vermont and Vermont’s Influence on the Counterculture Generation

May 5
7:00 pm


Goodrich Memorial Library
Young hippies playing flute with sheep in Vermont

In the late 1960s and ’70s, thousands of young migrants, largely from the cities and suburbs of New York and Massachusetts, turned their backs on the establishment of the 1950s and moved to the back woods, small towns and cities of rural Vermont, transforming the state while being transformed themselves.

Yvonne Daley is a longtime journalist with the Rutland Herald and is the author of Going Up the Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks and Radicals Moved to Vermont.
