Press release

Local author Mary Kronenwetter will be the guest speaker at the Wilmot Library on Wednesday, November 9, at 7 PM. She will talk about her book Pauper Auction, a riveting tale that describes the practice of New England towns auctioning off their poor to the highest bidder.

A New Englander by birth and disposition, Kronenwetter grew up in a 19th century Massachusetts farmhouse complete with a well, barn, outbuildings, pasture, and fields lined with stone walls. Having earned a doctorate in education, Kronenwetter has taught at colleges in the United States, China, and Japan. She now lives in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region and has served as a museum educator at Historic Deerfield, The John Hay Estate at The Fells, and the Enfield Shaker Museum.

The talk, part of the library’s lecture series, will take place at 11 North Wilmot Road in Wilmot and is free and open to the public. For more information call 603 526-6804 or email wilmotlibrary@nullcomcast.net.
