Edie Clark:  
"What There Was Not To Tell"

What_Not_to_Tell_cover_good-210.jpg

“In "What There Was Not to Tell", Edie Clark sets out to fill in the details of the gaping hole that was created in her family’s life by the death of a man she never met. What she discovered is a riveting story that is tragic yet triumphant, uniquely personal yet universal. This is a surprising and thoroughly compelling tale of how a single casualty of war can set off chain reactions of heartbreaking loss, undying love, and unshakable loyalty across multiple generations. At the same time, it is an incredible piece of family detective work that keeps taking unexpected twists and turns.” – Dayton Duncan, author of The Dust Bowl and The National Parks: America's Best Idea

Edie, a returning NHHC Humanities presenter, is a writer, editor, journalist, essayist and lecturer.  She is a Fellow at The MadCowell Colony, Hedgebrook Writer's Colony, and a Visiting Writer at Northern Michigan University.  Edie also teaches writing and journalism at the graduate and undergraduate level.  

The library and the Gorham Senior & Adult Program is pleased to present Edie on Wednesday, March 18th, 7pm, here in our Meeting Room. This event is free and made possible by a grant by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
