The Health of Democracy and the Role of Political Journalism

Tuesday, May 25 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm via Zoom

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is excited to welcome author and journalist Garrett M. Graff to talk about political journalism. Journalism, especially political journalism, may be under assault, but its enshrinement in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is in no danger. Political reporters witness what citizens can’t and tell stories that can change laws, leaders, and our lives. A native of Vermont, Garrett M. Graff’s political reporting captures the zeitgeist of our nation through his writing on the mechanics and machinations of American government and political hot button topics. In this talk for GMALL, Graff will draw on his reporting experiences, and a distinctive body of work, which blends breaking news, national political reporting, and deep examinations of U.S. government institutions and latter 20th century American political history. Registration is $15 per person in advance. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit (Photo by Matthew Henry from Burst)
