October 15: Bucksport

On October 1 Verso Corporation announced the closure of the paper mill in Bucksport, Maine. With more than 500 employees, and more than 1/4 living in Bucksport, the impacts will ripple though the community and the wider region.

Join us for a discussion about the closure of the Verso Paper Mill in Bucksport. Our guests will help us to understand how a community builds on their assets to sustain society, economy, health and environment.

We invite your calls and email with questions and comments.
