Third Annual Great North Woods Community Read

What was life like for humans thousands of years ago in the place we now call New Hampshire?  Who lived on the land where we now work and play?  Find out on October 4th, at 6pm during the Great North Woods Libraries’ third Community Read, when we meet author Dr. Robert Goodby, learn more about his discoveries and ask him questions about his book, A Deep Presence: 13,000 Years of Native American History. Join via Zoom, or attend the watch party at WMCC in Berlin.

During the summer, partnering libraries will host individual book discussions of this title; check with your library to borrow copies of the book and for dates and times and to attend complimentary programs.
