Middlebury College students Tik Root and Paul Rosenfeld set out to meet and talk with people along Vermont’s Route
100, to find out how people in Vermont’s countryside and
small towns are doing these days. All week during Morning Edition, we’ll sample those conversations, and hear what Root and Rosenfeld discovered in their travels.
We asked listeners to tell us a little something about their towns – the people and places that make each village unique. Well, you responded and flooded our email inboxes with suggestions. Our ongoing series pokes around in towns across the state.
VPR presents a six-part series that looks at how the Northeast Kingdom is trying to set the stage for economic renewal and transform its economy into one where jobs are more plentiful and future is brighter.
VPR continues its collaboration with the Vermont Humanities Council to support its one-book state-wide, community reading program: Vermont Reads. For 2012, the Council has selected "Bull Run" by Paul Fleischman.
