Welcome to Frost Heaves with Fred Marple

Wednesday August 26, 2015
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Fred Marple, the Garrison Keillor of New Hampshire, takes his readers on a delightful romp through the imaginary but oh-so-familiar New England town of Frost Heaves—from the town dump to the Town Meeting—and all the people who make it special.

Fred—also known as humorist and songwriter Ken Sheldon—has been on New Hampshire Chronicle, in the pages of Yankee Magazine, and New Hampshire Magazine, and on the radio. He has appeared at town halls, church basements, and the homes of most of his friends, usually right around dinner time. Fred is a graduate of the Frost Heaves Academy and the East Coast School of Knife Sharpening and Carburetor Repair.

Copies of  his new book Welcome to Frost Heaves will be available for purchase and signing.


Location: Keyes Meeting Room          Sign up today!
