“The importance of Stories in our Lives”


Wednesday, October 22nd at 7:00pm at the Haston Library


A Free Program Sponsored by the North Brookfield Historical Society Hosted by the Haston Lbrary.


Thatcher Freund, a journalist and memoirist, will talk about the importance of stories in our lives both to ourselves and to the culture we live in, and why it matters so much that we preserve them.

Thatcher is a graduate of Stanford University with a B.A. in History, and the Columbia School of Journalism, and has lived in New England off and on for the last twenty years.  His published work includes a book, Objects of Desire: The Lives of Antiques and Those Who Pursue Them, which follows the lives of three pieces of American furniture from their creation in the 18th Century to their sales at Sotheby’s some 250 years later.  Besides his speaking engagements, Thatcher helps people to write their own memoirs and teaches workshops on memoir writing.
