An Evening of Songs and Stories

There are many ways to make a positive difference in the world. One interesting, strange and inspiring story about doing so is that of New England’s own Lara Herscovitch, who will share her songs and stories in a presentation as unique as her path.

Join Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning on Thursday, October 17, at 7, for ‘Making a Difference: An Evening of Songs and Stories,’ at Maple Street School in Manchester Center, Vt.

Lara will tell us (and sing to us) about significant moments on her journey from pre-law student, to program and policy social worker in the U.S. and overseas, to award-winning folk musician.

This original presentation will demonstrate how separate careers in working to improve local and global villages came together to create a whole much greater than the sum of its parts.

Lara will touch on diverse themes: social justice, poverty, criminal justice, jury duty, landfills, gun violence and love, with an eye on inspiring change to address them in positive ways.

Lara Herscovitch is an award-winning, touring singer/songwriter and policy social worker. Her music is modern folk with flavors of jazz, blues and pop.

The performance and presentation will include an opportunity for questions and discussion. Tickets are $15 paid in advance; $20 at the door; $5 for students.
