In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to those who are most vulnerable in our community, the River Garden will be closed to the public until Vermont's Stay Home Stay Safe orders are lifted. At that time the staff will use the latest information from the Department of Health to determine if we should resume our regular open hours of Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Women's Expo, which was scheduled for May 1 is postponed to a date to be determined. We are also postponing all scheduled Brown Bag Lunch events until further notice. We will post a notification with the new date details as soon as possible.

Brown Bag Series: Democracy Forum -TRUMP AND MALIGNANT NARCISSISM with Tim Kipp and Nick Biddle

February 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In August 2019 on MSNBC, Harvard psychiatry professor Lance Dodes diagnosed President Trump as a “malignant narcissist.” Two and a half years earlier Dr. John D. Gardner of Johns Hopkins University concluded the same. In this presentation local psychiatrist Dr. Neil Senior will provide clinical definitions for the characteristics of malignant narcissism. Tim Kipp and Nick Biddle will describe policy actions, tweets, and behaviors of Trump that exhibit malignant narcissism. Audience members will be asked to pitch in. Nick says: When I say “failure to accept responsibility,” and you think Trump, what comes to mind?

-Nick Biddle, PhD,  retired professor of Latin American history, and  Brattleboro resident since 2013
