The Yankee Bookshop and Jack Crowl present authors Elizabeth Courtney and Eric Zency authors of “The Greening of Vermont” on January 4 at 6:30pm at the Norman Williams Public Library, Woodstock.
Vermont is a famously verdant state, a place where nature & culture are in better balance than elsewhere. How did Vermont get that way? And more importantly, can the Vermont experience point the way toward achieving a sustainable society, one that doesn’t destroy its own root in nature?
In this history of the Vermont environmental movement, authors ELIZABETH COURTNEY and ERIC ZENCY show how the arrival of the petroleum economy in the 1950s transformed the state – and how the response of the environmental movement laid the groundwork for the kind of society that we all must build for the future.
