A look at life in New England--the way we talk, dress, eat, and do other things that that mystify people from away.
Sat. May 13, 7:30 pm
Franklin Opera House, Franklin, NH
Join Fred as he discusses Yankee food, like why we think baked beans and vegetables boiled with a piece of corned beef are examples of haute cuisine. He’ll examine Yankee fashion, from the ever-present flannel to rummage sale ensembles. You’ll learn about old houses and why we love them in spite of bats in the attic and wiring possibly installed by Ben Franklin. Fred will explain life in a small town, where everyone knows your business--often before you do—and the people who live there, from the cheapskate native to the affluent transplant.
Tickets are just $14 for adults, $10 for kids 12 and under, $12 for seniors and students--a real Yankee bargain! Click here to order your tickets now.
