Getting from Here to There: A History of Roads and Settlements in Vermont
Sun, Nov 15th
Orwell Free Library
The difficulties of traveling in Vermont played a significant role in the state’s settlement, development, culture and politics. But Vermonters weren’t always eager to have good roads. Novelist Deborah Lee Luskin asks, given centuries of opposition, how is it we now drive cars in all seasons, in all weather, in all corners of the state?
POP Goes History: What Coca Cola Tells Us about American History
Sun, Nov 29th
New Haven Town Offices
The Coca Cola logo is the world’s most recognizable trademark. Both the logo and the product are so thoroughly identified with the United States that for many people, Coke is the symbol of America. Castleton professor Sanjukta Ghosh’s multimedia talk will explore how Coke’s advertising has affected not only America, but also places all over the world.
And those are just a handful of the events coming up in our neck of the woods. For more listings, see the Addison Independent’s website, the Vermont Humanities’ Events Calendar, or the Chamber of Commerce’s calendar.
