Canaan Town Library is presenting the 22nd year of thir Meetinghouse Readings series. Here's the announcement:
Four Evenings Of Storytelling and Poetry By Great Authors!
This year's edition of the Meetinghouse Readings features outstanding poets Major Jackson and Carol Westberg, the go-for-broke short stories of Creston Lea and the deep family drama of Katharine Britton's debut novel, Her Sister's Shadow. Groundbreaking narrative histories by Neil Goodwin and Tom Powers retell, respectively, the Revolutionary War raid on Royalton, Vermont and the end of effective Native American resistance in the far West with the killing of Crazy Horse. Cultural historian Howard Mansfield looks at how time and place are coming undone in our ultra-mobile Internet era, and Sally Brady's memoir, A Box of Darkness: The Story of a Marriage looks at ties that bind even when trust is broken.
It's going to be a great season of readings at this unique, grassroots literary festival. Join us!
