First Wednesdays are back!
October 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
October 4 @ 7 pm ♦ Mark A. Stoler
The 2017-2018 First Wednesdays season opens on October 4th with a talk by University of Vermont Professor Emeritus Mark Stoler, speaking on “Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself: FDR and the New Deal.”
For a preview of all the upcoming talks, download the new flyer.
From 1929 to 1939, the US experienced the longest and worst economic depression in its history and the first in which the federal government acted decisively to reverse it. Prof. Stoler discusses how Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal changed government’s role in the economy and affected the lives of Americans in ways that are still with us.
