LONDONDERRY — Author Yvonne Daley will be zooming in at Neighborhood Connections on Friday, Nov. 13, at 4 p.m., to discuss her book “Going Up the

Country: When the Hippies, Dreamers, Freaks and Radicals Moved to Vermont.”

The book is part oral history, part nostalgia-tinged narrative and part clear-eyed analysis of the counterculture movement in Vermont which forever changed the state’s complexion.

As one of those hippies who moved to Vermont during that time, Daley offers an inside-look at the movement and discusses the result of how these back-to-landers, political radicals, sexual libertines and utopians changed the previously conservative state and leading to farm-to-table, Bernie Sanders and the progressive politics of today.
