Mayor’s Office

Mayor's Book Group

Since 2014, the Mayor's Office and the University of Vermont Humanities Center have partnered to host the Mayor's Book Group. Mayor Weinberger selects a book that engages a critical topic facing the Burlington community; the University of Vermont Humanities Center sponsors an order of 100-200 books that we distribute for free through the Fletcher Free Library, the Mayor's Office, and the Humanities Center; and then we host a discussion that features a panel of experts followed by general conversation about the issues and themes raised by the book. These meetings have been a valuable forum for community conversation about important ideas.
