Korongo started in the back of an art gallery in Randolph, Vermont. We now conduct our writing workshops in Vermont and France. Our mission: to preserve the personal histories of the people in our valley. Our work has been exhibited at the Vermont Folklife Center, the Vermont State House, and other galleries and recognized by the Vermont Historical Society.
When 63-year-old Mary Anderson set out to hike the southern half of the 3,000-mile Continental Divide Trail last summer, nobody thought she would make it. Hikers give themselves trail names, and Mary’s was Old Lady Hiker. A few days into her solo trek, she ran into some younger hikers who decided she needed a new name. From then on, she was known as Mary Badass. In the fall of 2020, Mary began writing her story in a Korongo workshop hosted by Kimball Library in Randolph.
