Included with regular admission to the Millyard Museum
*AARP members receive a $3 discount on admission
Free to members of the Manchester Historic Association
Pre-registration is requested - Please call (603)622-7531
      


Manchester native Grace DeRepentigny Metalious believed that in rejecting her own ethnic and religious heritage, she would come closer to inheriting the “American Dream.” Her Quebecois ancestry and her formative years in Manchester reveal aspects of the author that the public rarely knew. Historian Robert Perreault will give a lecture and slide presentation that focuses on Metalious’s most autobiographical and ethnically-oriented but little-known novel, No Adam in Eden.

*Today is AARP Day in the Millyard Museum!  AARP members receive a discount of $3 on admission to the museum (includes admission to this lecture). The museum is open from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Please remember to bring your current AARP card to be eligible for the discount. AARP staff and volunteers will greet visitors from 10:00 a.m. until Noon.
