From Nashua to Alaska: an Adventure

Janice Schofield Eaton will visit the library on Wednesday, July 1, at 7 pm to present her slide program"Beyond Road's End: Living Free in Alaska," the true-life tale of a NH couple who migrated to Alaska during the 70's recession, seeking a freer life. Learn what unfolds as jobs are left behind and a log home built in the wilderness. Discover what life in Alaska is truly like.

Eaton, who grew up in Nashua and has family in Merrimack, has written a book about her experiences (pictured at left) and copies will be for sale for cash only at the program. She is also the author of Discovering Wild Plants and Alaska's Wild Plants.

Eaton currently lives in New Zealand (and there's likely a story there, too), and she will be visiting in Merrimack for part of July. We are grateful to her brother, John Desclos, for suggesting that she might like to speak at the Merrimack Library during her visit. This will be a great program for dreamers and armchair travelers.

We recommend you reserve a seat by calling 424-5021 or emailing. Our programs often fill up, so a reservation guarantees you a seat.
