Vermont towns may be small, but (unlike Trump’s hands) they are not clenched in anger. Rather, they are resisting with characteristic wit and charm, with town meetings and grassroots organizing. In The Full Vermonty: Vermont in the Age of Trump, Second Edition, edited by Bill Mares and Jeff Danziger, some of Vermont’s most famous voices ask, “What the hell do we do now that Trump is causing a rukus?” The collection of essays, published by Green Writers Press in Brattleboro, Vermont, explores how Vermont—a small, rural state with a progressive history—must reckon with what it means to exist in Trump’s America. But The Full Vermonty, Second Edition isn’t just for Vermont readers—it is for anyone wondering how to resist, persevere, and remain hopeful in the age of Trump. Expanded to include updated essays and a new cover cartoon by nationally syndicated cartooonist Danziger, the Second Edition is bound to wake up the entire nation.
