Please note: participants can join over Zoom or in-person at either Dorothy Alling Memorial Library or South Burlington Public Library.
Join Dorothy Alling Memorial Library and South Burlington Public Library for a hybrid book discussion of this year’s Vermont Reads pick We Contain Multitudes by Sarah Henstra. The novel tells the paired stories of two very different teenage boys who are initially reluctant to participate in a pen-pal assignment from their high school English teacher, but ultimately grow well beyond the boundaries of the school project to reveal earth-shattering revelations about themselves and their families.
Poet Sarah Audsley joined us at the Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park for Words in the Woods.
Humanities Camps are filled with reading and writing projects, field trips, and outdoor activities.
We won a 2020 Schwartz Prize for best public humanities programming in the U.S. for Vermont Reads 2019: “March: Book One.”
We supported Historic New England’s “More than a Market” project that explored the experiences of new Americans through food markets.
Our free public events help bring the power of the humanities to communities across Vermont.
