    Rich Winston

    Join Rick Winston, author of Red Scare in the Green Mountains, for a discussion of this new book. Rick will be introduced by Richard Watts of the Center for Research on Vermont.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the "Red Scare" swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Rick Winston explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural "rock-ribbed Republican" state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Far from the klieg lights of Washington D.C., Hollywood, and New York City, the Green Mountain state challenged the national narrative with its own fascinating stories. Here are nine of the most gripping dramas played out in Vermont during "scoundrel time...
