Beginning January 16, 2014 and continuing monthly, the Vermont Historical Society will offer presentations about historic topics over the lunch hour from noon to 1:00 pm at the Vermont History Museum at 109 State Street, Montpelier, Vermont.

“Bring your lunch and come to the Snelling Room at the museum for animated talks steeped in Vermont history,” said Vermont Historical Society’s Public Programs Coordinator, Amanda Gustin. “Listen to our first talk with author Judith Edwards as she shares some of her tales and research behind her middle grade historical fiction.” Edwards lives in southeastern Vermont near Mount Ascutney State Park, one of many parks nationwide whose roads, stone buildings, and campsites were created by Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
