I am so incredibly impressed with the work of the Vermont Humanities Council, from your extensive First Wednesdays offerings to Vermont Roads and beyond! More power to your creativity and support of the humanities in Vermont!

The Vermont Humanities Council seeks to engage all Vermonters in the world of ideas, foster a culture of thoughtfulness, and inspire a lifelong love of reading and learning.
A state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Vermont Humanities Council (VHC) believes that engagement with the world of ideas contributes to richer lives, stronger communities, a more humane society, and a better world.
VHC has developed a broad range of programs that serve Vermonters of all ages and backgrounds. In 2017 VHC sponsored 840 talks, book discussions, literacy programs, and other humanities events in 145 Vermont towns, including communities in every county, and partnered with 297 organizations.
Programs include book discussions, speaker events, conferences, a statewide one-book community reading program, and a grants program that supports humanities projects of other nonprofit organizations.
