VPR continues the My Vermont series with a special week devoted to challenges and concerns of listeners. Today we ask the question: How are the people and landscape of Vermont changing, and what do we want to preserve? You can listen to a special rebroadcast of Vermont Edition every night this week at 7.
VPR’s Jane Lindholm spoke with author Jaed Coffin and Lorrie Smith,
a Professor of English at St. Michael’s College who teaches classes on race and
culture about the complicated issue of multi-ethnic identity.
We talk with memoirist Jaed Coffin and Saint Michael’s College English
professor Lorrie Smith about how people understand their own cultural identities when their families comprise diverse backgrounds. Also, new rules for crossing the Canadian border go into
effect on Thursday, and we learn the secrets of building igloos.
