Rick Winston & Michael Sherman: "Red Scare in the Green Mountains"

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Red Scare in The Green Mountains: A Discussion with Author Rick Winston & Vermont Historian Michael Sherman What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the "Red Scare" swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Author Rick Winston and Vermont historian Michael Sherman will explore some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural "rock-ribbed Republican" state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Rick will also read from his new book, "Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era 1946-1960." Free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by Bear Pond Books and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Please enter the library by School Street entrance, as the main library will be closed.
