Our Stories, Our Lives

Thatcher Freund, a memoir writer and former journalist, will talk about the importance of stories in our lives, and why it matters so much that we preserve them, not just for our descendants and the people who will live in York a century from now, but as a vital historical record for historians and others who will want to understand our time. Thatcher has lived in New England off and on for the last twenty years. He is author of “Objects of Desire: The Lives of Antiques and Those Who Pursue Them”, which follows three pieces of American furniture from their creation in the 18th century to their sales at Sotheby’s some 250 years later.
