Weathering the Storm

The Vermont Folklife Center announces the release Weathering the Storm, a new audio documentary that explores the experiences of Tropical Storm Irene in the state.

Weathering the Storm features the voices of 40 Vermonters sharing their accounts of the storm and the recovery. The accounts that shape Weathering the Storm are drawn from Story Circles facilitated by VFC as a part of the Irene Storytelling Project.
