1.03: Gov. Madeleine Kunin | Take a Leaf

On this episode of Take a Leaf, we welcome former Governor Madeleine Kunin to discuss her new memoir Coming of Age: My Journey to the Eighties. We discuss the memoir itself, including Kunin’s poetry, her thoughts on aging, and her post-political life. This episode concludes with a reflection on women in politics, sources of empowerment among women, and the inspiration that Gov. Kunin took in first deciding to run for office. Join us for a timely discussion with Vermont’s first female governor.

Meet Take a Leaf

Welcome to takealeaf.org, Take a Leaf's home on the internet. Take a Leaf is a new podcast from Green Writers Press in Brattleboro, VT. We're interested in the business of making, reading, writing, and living with books. And while Green Writers Press has a particular interest in environmental and local-to-Vermont literature, we're interested in hearing from folks near and far!

You can listen to Take a Leaf on any and every podcast platform and we'll be posting them here as well. Our first episode is an interview with Vermont author and social worker, Sarah Ward, about her latest book, Aesop Lake
