Book Talk & Signing
Sunday, May 4
2 p.m.

The Cornwall Historical Society is pleased to present a special book talk with John Demos, author of The Heathen School. The program will be held at the Cornwall Town Hall, which is located just across the Green from where the “heathen school” stood.

For several years, volunteers and staff at the Cornwall Historical Society assisted Demos with his research into Cornwall’s Foreign Mission School, the subject of his new book. The Society’s collections include a number of artifacts from the school and its pupils. A selection of those artifacts will be on view during Demos’ talk.

Copies of The Heathen School will be available for purchase at the talk, for $30 each.Proceeds will benefit the Cornwall Historical Society. Cash or check only, no credit cards.
