Here and Everywhere Else: Small-Town Maine and the World

a book talk with Andrew Witmer

Thursday, August 18, 7 PM ET

In 1822, settlers pushed north from Massachusetts and other parts of New England into Monson, Maine. On land taken from the Penobscot people, they established prosperous farms and businesses. Focusing on the microhistory of this village, Andrew Witmer reveals the sometimes surprising ways that this small New England town engaged with the wider world across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Townspeople fought and died in distant wars, transformed the economy and landscape with quarries and mills, and used railroads, highways, print, and new technologies to forge connections with the rest of the nation.

About the author: Andrew Witmer is an associate professor of history at James Madison University.

Cost: Free and open to the public.
