Democracy in the Mountains: The Vermont-Switzerland Connection With Susan Clark

Gorgeous mountains, vibrant farms, flocking tourists, even chocolate--Vermont has a lot in common with Switzerland. But few New Englanders know that Switzerland is the only other place in the world with whom we share one other proud tradition: town meetings.

Every Swiss community, from alpine villages to the metropolis of Zurich, is governed through a form of town meeting. As Vermont grows and changes, what can we learn from the surprising historical parallels and creative adaptations of the Swiss experience? Join us for an evening of photos and discussion, featuring beautiful images from outdoor Swiss canton-wide meetings, among Switzerland's most surprising and fascinating alpine traditions.

Susan Clark is an educator and co-author of two books about local democracy: All Those In Favor: Rediscovering the Secrets of Town Meeting and Community, and Slow Democracy. She has conducted interviews and observed at numerous town meetings across Switzerland. She serves as Town Moderator of Middlesex, Vermont.

Come get up close and personal with the Vermont Institute of Natural Science's (VINS) Raptor Encounters program at the Varnum Memorial Library.

Varnum Reads: Little & Lion

The Varnum Memorial Library is happy to announce that Varnum Reads, the adult book club that exclusively reads young adult literature, is returning this fall! Our first book is the Stonewall Book Award winner Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert.

Little & Lion is a coming of age story about two people falling in love with the same person. If you add stepsiblings, boarding school, and a seemingly-scary diagnosis, this tale of exploring identity keeps the reader engaged and wanting to find out what happens next.

Varnum Reads is open to all adults. We own a copy of this book at the library, but can order multiple copies as needed. Our first meeting will be Thursday, October 24, 7-8pm.

The Life and Legacy of Nicholas Black Elk

The Life and Legacy of Nicholas Black Elk

This lecture explores the life and legacy of Nicholas Black Elk (1866-1950), the Lakota holy man made famous by the book “Black Elk Speaks.” Costello begins with Black Elk’s Great Vision and his struggle to discern his calling during the events of the Great Sioux War.

During his long life, Black Elk lived out his vision in three overlapping roles: as a traditional healer, a Catholic teacher, and a revivalist of Indigenous traditions. In the midst of great tragedy, Black Elk wove these three strands into one beautiful life exemplifying survival, hope, and reconciliation. The talk is based on extensive historical research, extended residency in Indian Country, and continuing conversation with Lakota elders.

Drag Queen Story Hour

Drag Queen Story Hour

Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne, two of Vermont's favorite drag queens, are returning to Lamoille County for another edition of Drag Queen Story Hour at Cambridge/Jeffersonville's Varnum Memorial Library! The queens will be sure to delight and captivate audience members of all ages as they share stories focused on individuality, activism, gender, creativity, expression, and social responsibility.

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.

DQSH was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco. DQSH events occur regularly in SF, NY, and LA. For more information on DQSH, visit DragQueenStoryHour.org. To watch episodes of The T or to learn more about Emoji & Nikki, visit NightPagne.com.
