BRISTOL — Vermont is often described as culturally homogenous, yet nearly a third of Vermonters have French Canadian ancestry.

In a free program presented by the One World Library Project, folklorist Gregory Sharrow will discuss these influences on Thursday, Oct. 12, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol.
