Mount Washington: Narratives and perspectives program and book signing on Thursday, Sept, 7

BETHEL, Maine — Mike Dickerman of Littleton will present a well-illustrated program about Mount Washington on Thursday, Sept. 7, at the Museums of the Bethel Historical Society in Maine. 

For more than two centuries, Mount Washington has been the object of countless writers’ wonder and fascination. Well familiar with the mountain’s story, Dickerman of Littleton is the owner of Bondcliff Books and has authored or edited numerous books, as well as a weekly hiking column published in many Granite State newspapers.

In his newest book, "Mount Washington: Narratives and Perspectives, Dickerman" includes more than 20 previously written pieces inspired by New England’s highest peak that cover nearly every aspect of the mountain’s storied past.

Following a 6:30 p.m. pot-luck supper and brief annual meeting starting at 7:30 p.m., Dickerman will present a program about Mount Washington. After the presentation, he will sign copies of his new book, which will be on sale at a special, reduced price that evening only.

The program is free and open to the public.
