Meet the author!

In The Darkness Under the Water, author Beth Kanell explores a little known side of 1920s American history: the eugenics project that took place in Vermont. The book is a fictionalized account of life just over the NH border, in Waterford, Vermont, focusing on those of Abenaki and French Canadian heritage, and gives us a glimpse of what life was like during the construction of Moore Dam.

On Tuesday, January 5, at noon, the author will be on campus to answer questions and discuss the book.

Copies of the book are available for loan in the library.
