Howard Mansfield, highly acclaimed local author of “In the Memory House” and “The Same Ax, Twice: Restoration and Renewal in a Throwaway Age,” will present his ideas on how history shapes our approaches to community.
The Tuesday, Oct. 14, program will be held at 7 p.m. in Sibley Hall at the Groton Public Library, in a partnership between the Groton Historical Society and Groton Public Library.
The talk is a follow-up to the Sept. 30 panel discussion on “How Does History Shape the Character of Groton?” The panel featured local community members who discussed their views on the ways that Groton’s unique history is brought to bear on the town’s decisions in the 21st century.
The library has extra copies of Mansfield’s books for those who would like to read them before his talk. Check gpl.org/events for information.
The talk is free and open to the public with support from the Groton Trust Funds and the Groton Public Library. Sign up for the talk on the Groton Public Library’s website.
