Rick Winston and historian Michael Sherman will discuss Rick's new book, Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era 1946-1960", at MSAC. 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, there were several fascinating stories in the Green Mountains: a high-profile academic firing, a conservative senator who helped take down Joseph McCarthy, controversies involving left-leaning summer residents, and some veteran newspaper editors who spoke out against McCarthy' tactics. Copies will be available to purchase and for Rick to sign, with 10% of the purchase going to benefit the MSAC.
