1800 and Froze to Death: A VHC Series hosted by Howard Coffin

1800 and Froze to Death: A VHC Series hosted by Howard Coffin

The year 1816 has long been known as the year without a summer. Vermonters still call it “1800 and Froze to Death,” a year of frosts every month, dark skies, and mysterious lights that caused a widespread belief that a higher power was displeased. In this talk, historian Howard Coffin includes scores of anecdotes on the dark year of failed crops, scarce food, and religious revival.
This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
Supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Vermont Humanities Council (VHC).

Immigration Restrictions Then and Now: Short Stories of Edith Eaton (Sui Sin Far)

Immigration Restrictions Then and Now: Short Stories of Edith Eaton (Sui Sin Far)

Suzanne Brown discusses three 1912 short stories by Edith Eaton (Sui Sin Far) that examine the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and its effects on the Chinese immigrant community. Eaton’s stories explore assimilation issues, family separations, discrimination, and fear of deportation in ways that still resonate in 2019. Audience members are encouraged to read the three short stories— "Mrs. Spring Fragrance," "In the Land of the Free," and "The Americanizing of Pau Tsu"—now available at Ilsley Library. Part of the First Wednesdays series, a Vermont Humanities Council program hosted by Ilsley Public Library in partnership with Middlebury College and the Mellon Foundation.
