In the Memory House

Please join us at the Library on Wednesday afternoon June 17th at 1:00PM as we discuss Howard Mansfield's thoughtful and evocative work, In the Memory House.
This unique study of cultural introspection unfolds in a series of meditative essays about time and change in New England that reveal how profoundly cultural memory affects our lives. Mansfield meanders through the small historical museums of New England; he peers into the past and present of the town meeting; he visits Lowell, Massachusetts, and the Jack Kerouac Memorial; he contrasts two views of Walden Pond and he causes us to consider seriously the passing of old-growth trees. -- From the publisher's summary
