The Book Club is discussing "Last Harvest" by Witold Rybczynski on Friday, January 16th, 5:30pm at Fratellos, 155 Dow Street in Manchester.  

Experience the entire process of a 90 acre cornfield being converted into a single-family residence detached subdivision.  Meet all of the players from the farmer to the abutters to the political leaders to the first residents of the new homes. 
 
Last Harvest was voted one of the ten best books of 2008 by the editors of Planetizen, and as Publishers Weekly said, "Rybczynski provides historical and cultural perspectives in a style reminiscent of Malcolm Gladwell, debunking the myth of urban sprawl and explaining American homeowners' preference for single-family dwellings."

Whether you've read the book or not, you are invited to join this FREE event. 

For more information and to RSVP, contact Elizabeth Wood or (307) 751-0296
