BRATTLEBORO PRINTING AND PUBLISHING HERITAGE MEETING

The Brattleboro Historical Society and Friends of Brooks Memorial Library are collaborating to generate ideas about how to increase community awareness and interest in Brattleboro’s 200-year printing and publishing heritage.

Community members interested in this topic are invited to a brainstorming meeting on Tuesday, September 15 at 7PM at the Brattleboro History Center in the Masonic Center at 196 Main Street.

The purpose of the meeting will be to gather ideas for ways to interest and engage our community in learning more about the influential roles that Brattleboro’s publishing and printing industries have played throughout our history.

By the early 1800s, Brattleboro was recognized as a major printing and publishing town in Vermont and New England. Ever since, these industries and businesses have made major economic, cultural and social contributions to the town and community. Today, with the emergence of digital publishing and printing, Brattleboro continues to be an incubator and innovative leader in the electronic world of printing and publishing.
