New Hampshire author Howard Mansfield will be speaking at Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls, Vermont on Friday, Oct 13 at 7pm.
Mansfield's collection of essays Summer Over Autumn, will delight readers from all walks of life: whether small town or big city, and encourage them to further explore their own homes. Mansfield has an uncanny ability to entice hidden stories from everything around him and it shines through in these essays about neighbors, animals, tractors, trees, yard sales, funerals, money, and fidelity to time itself.
Writing about preservation, architecture and American history, Howard Mansfield has contributed to The New York Times, American Heritage, The Washington Post, Historic Preservation, Yankee and other publications. Mansfield has explored issues of preservation in eight books, including In the Memory House, of which The Hungry Mind Review said, “Now and then an idea suddenly bursts into flame, as if by spontaneous combustion. One instance is the recent explosion of American books about the idea of place… But the best of them, the deepest, the widest-ranging, the most provocative and eloquent is Howard Mansfield’s In the Memory House. He lives in Hancock with his wife, author Sy Montgomery. For Book and Event reservations, call 802-463-9404 or reserve a book online.
