“Where There’s Smoke, There’s Dinner: Stories of a Seared Childhood”
8:30pm
Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons and drives to the dump... Those are just some of the stories you'll hear about the glorious and gut-wrenching lives of four generations of Carpenters raised in a small town on the St. Lawrence River. The youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible. These magnificent tales give voice to multi-generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent.
