Contrasting visions of community from Upper Valley residents

Episode 8 – Our 8th guest shares a vision of community that is rooted in compassion, empathy and caregiving, and describes arriving in the Upper Valley from a large family in a large city, learning a new pace and a sense of safety in the outside world while struggling with full-time work and finding affordable day care as single parent of a toddler. 

Episode 9 – Our 9th guest calls out the hypocrisy and disingenuousness they have experienced in the Upper Valley, where they have felt both accepted and recognized as a young, skilled athlete and then pushed aside, shunned as a visible individual, learning what it is to be alone and to struggle, encouraging us all to be slower to judge one another, to get to know one another’s stories, and to move beyond appearances. 

Intersections was created by Michelle and Julius, co-workers and friends who wanted to create an open-ended platform for sharing our experiences of community in the Upper Valley.  To share your story or questions, you’re invited to email them at:


“I am a first grade teacher and want to teach a unit on graphic novels. I have some graphic novels, but it is hard to find ones that are appropriate for little ones and that the reading level is not too challenging. Help!!” 

Help is on the way, Teacher Cindy!  In this week's episode (9) of Shelf Help, each bookseller discusses one book, ok maybe two or three. And, we have an opportunity to shout out the Center for Cartoon Studies located within a baseball throw of where we record.

Shelf Help is a collaboration between the Book Jam, a nonprofit designed to inspire readers; CATV Upper Valley media community; three Upper Valley bookstores: Yankee Bookshop in Woodstock, VT; the Norwich Bookstore in Norwich, VT; and Still North Books & Bar in Hanover, NH.

jamCAMP for teens @CATV: News & Multimedia Journalism

Campers in grades 8-12 will be joined by professional journalists Maggie Cassidy (VTDigger), Jim Kenyon (Valley News), Rob Gurwitt (Daybreak), and Elizabeth Wilcox (author and journalist) for this deep dive in real reporting. Probing current issues of concern to them, campers will produce news projects across media, including text, podcasting/radio, and TV/ streaming – asking essential questions about the roles and responsibilities of “the media” in our democracy, what makes a good story, and how we know “truth” in reporting.  

Directed by Tamsin Orion (documentary filmmaker) & Samantha Davidson Green (CATV executive director)
