Mill Town: Reckoning with What Remains

November 2nd, 2020 · No Comments · City Library, Events, Main Branch, Virtual Programs, West Branch

Join us as we welcome ‘Mill Town’ author Kerri Arsenault and Manchester Historic Association’s Executive Director John Clayton for a joint book and local history discussion as we compare and contrast Arsenault’s Mill Town of Mexico, Maine to our own. Join us as we reflect upon the shared experiences of life in a mill town, the challenges faced by those who call it home, how the past shapes our present, and the overall legacy of mill towns.

Mill Town examines the rise and collapse of the working class and the American Dream, loving and leaving a mill town, and the ambiguous nature of toxics and disease’ (Arsenault).

Please reserve a copy of the book through the library catalog. Also available in ebook and Audiobook on CD.

To purchase a copy, please check with your local bookstore.
