Event Details

Howard Mansfield is guest author on Mon. Nov. 8, 2021 at 6pm. He will read from and discuss his new book Chasing Eden (released October 12) About this event Chasing Eden is about the seekers all around us, about Americans seeking their Promised Land, their utopia out on the horizon — which by definition, is ever receding before us. In Chasing Eden we meet a gathering of Americans – the Shakers in the twilight of their utopia; the Wampanoags confronting the Pilgrims; the God-besotted landscape painters who taught Americans that in wilderness was Eden; and 40,000 Africans newly freed from slavery granted 40 acres and a mule – only to be swiftly dispossessed. These and other seekers were on the road to find out, all united by their longing to find in America “a revolution of the spirit.”
