Memories of Vermont's Counter Culture Movement

Charlotte Donaldson Lecture Series

Author Yvonne Dailey will share images and remembrances of Vermont’s Counter Culture Movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Yvonne Daley moved to Vermont in 1967 as part of the counterculture movement and later became an award-winning journalist for the Boston Globe, Rutland Herald, Washington Post and other publications. Her newest book, Going Up the Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks and Radicals Moved to Vermont, explores how thousands of young migrants like her, largely from cities and suburbs of New York and Massachusetts, turned their backs on the establishment of the 1950s and moved to Vermont, spawning a revolution in lifestyle, politics, farming, sexuality, and business practices that had a profound impact on the state and the nation.
