The Vermont Historical Society will be holding a public program at 7 p.m. on April 13 at Brooks Memorial Library Meeting Room, 224 Main St., Brattleboro to give an update about the impact of counterculture and the influence of the 1970s on Vermont.

"Public Program Coordinator Amanda Gustin and I will share the initial results of our research and give a preview of the exhibit and symposium scheduled for fall 2016," stated Jackie Calder, Vermont Historical Society curator.

In the 1970s, Vermont changed in meaningful ways: politically, culturally, and demographically. The Vermont Historical Society has been leading a two-year project to collect memories, documents, and objects from this tumultuous decade to document the impact of counterculture.

The Vermont Historical Society will update information about this project on their website: Contact Jackie Calder for information at 802-479-8514.
