Mentalist - Preston Heller
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Preston Heller will not tell you what a mentalist does. He will show you! And in so doing, every audience member will have a unique, personal experience with the “unseen”, including thought implantation or ‘influence’, revealing of information known only to the spectator, predictions, reading of body language and voice patterns, psychometry and much more.

“Seeing the Unseen” is part of his Fighting Hunger Tour. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned or dry goods for A Place to Turn Food Pantry.

This program is 100% family friendly and free but due to the nature of the subject matter it is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Ted Reinstein : New England’s General Stores
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us at 7pm with author Ted Reinstein and his new book New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic. 

The general store, as old as America itself, harkens back to a simpler time and a more innocent and rural nation. The general store conjures a country-like place where kids come in to by penny candy, and adults to buy everything from swaths of fabric, to fresh vegetables, to four-penny nails. It was a place to pick up mail, the newspaper, and perhaps tarry a bit on a cold, winter’s morning to chat over a cup of coffee and a warm wood stove. Long before “Cheers,” the general store was the vital and inviting heart of a community, where everyone not only knew your name, but how you took that coffee, how many kids you had, and how’s your dad doing, anyway? And in tough times, it was a place that often treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. The general store was real-life Norman Rockwell—deeply woven into America’s cultural identity, an integral part of the nation’s self-portrait from its earliest days. Fact is, the general store is still very much here, and very much in business. What’s more, like the diner, it has seen a resurgence. In some places, it is even being reimagined for a new era.
