KEN SHELDON signing and discussing WELCOME TO FROST HEAVES: YOU CAN’T GET THERE FROM HERE in which Fred Marple takes readers on a delightful romp through the imaginary town of Frost Heaves.
Fred Marple, the Garrison Keillor of New Hampshire, takes his readers on a delightful romp through the imaginary but oh-so-familiar New England town of Frost Heaves—from the town dump to the Town Meeting—and all the people who make it special.
In the grand tradition of Bert and I, Mark Twain, and Lake Wobegon comes Welcome to Frost Heaves, a collection of stories from “the most under-appreciated town in New Hampshire” as told by Fred Marple, the town’s unofficial spokesman. From town meeting to the town dump, Frost Heaves is every small New England town you’ve ever visited, and a few you probably don’t want to. Fred Marple tells the story about the imaginary characters that live and interact in Frost Heaves, and the lessons they learn from their (often hilarious) capers.
Frost Heaves is a variety show of Yankee music, comedy, and nonsense direct from "the most underappreciated town in New Hampshire." The Frost Heaves Players present all that is wacky and wonderful about New England, led by Fred Marple (singer, songwriter and humorist Ken Sheldon). Winner of a "Best of NH" award, Frost Heaves has been called "Hilarious," "Outstanding," and "more fun than the time Elmer Cratchet put the live lobster in the punch bowl at the church supper.”
