Peterborough - Howard Mansfield signs and discusses "Chasing Eden: A Book Of Seekers"

Yes, we probably all have our visions of Eden, some of us simply dream about it, but Hancock, NH writer Mansfield has pursued some active chasers and written a fascinating account of individuals and groups that made attempts to create an Edenic life here on earth. They range from the Shaker Community in Canterbury to an early 20th century Black doctor in Keene who crossed over and back between races. And not to be missed is the powerful chapter on the 40 thousand former slaves offered “40 acres and a mule” right after the Civil War. An Eden promised but not delivered.

Weather permitting this event will be outside the store. And we plan to have it streamed live through Facebook for those who cannot attend.
