A Memory Quilt of 9/11 Reflections

Vermont Public Radio will be at four locations around the state this Saturday, August 20, collecting Vermonters’ thoughts and memories of September 11th.

VPR reporters will be stationed in the following locations to record reflections for an audio "memory quilt" that will be broadcast the week of September 5th in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11:
  • Barton: Orleans County Fair, in the far corner of the parking lot, 1-4 p.m.
  • Brattleboro: Farmers Market, Rte. 9 near the Creamery Covered Bridge, 10 a.m. – noon
  • Burlington: City Hall Park near Church Street, 10 a.m. – noon.
  • Rutland: Farmers Market at the northwest corner of Depot Park, 10 a.m. – noon.
Reporters will ask participants about their experience of September 11, 2001, and how the events of that day changed their daily lives and the way they view the world.

VPR is also working with the Vermont Folklife Center, which is making arrangements to record people at its office in Middlebury.

Watch for details next week about more ways to participate in this project. All of the audio will be posted at And all the comments will be collected and preserved in the archive at the Vermont Folklife Center.
