Living Deliberately: What Thoreau Means Today

Join us for quarterly talks with local experts and participate in roundtable conversations in a convivial atmosphere over light snacks and with a beverage (cash bar). Conceived by VBS owner Becky Dayton as a way for Middlebury College and other professional communities to come together with townspeople of all walks of life to share ideas, Up for Discussion has, thanks to the hard work of Town Hall Theater’s executive director Lisa Mitchell, been underwritten by Vermont Humanities.

Professor of Literature Dan Brayton joins Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Rebecca Gould to discuss “Living Deliberately: What Thoreau Means Today.”

Thanks to a grant from Vermont Humanities, Vermont Book Shop and Town Hall Theater present a new, free, quarterly series designed to spark community conversation. “Up for Discussion” features local experts in their fields, many of whom are Middlebury College professors, sharing timely topics that span literature, art, film, and contemporary issues.

Each 30-minute presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion and sharing of thoughts and ideas with a cash bar.  Up for Discussion is free, but registration is required, as space is limited.
