Legendary lumberman J. E. Henry subject of next author series event


Legendary New Hampshire lumber baron James Everell Henry, a Lyman native who went on to operate several logging railroads in the White Mountains and helped develop the town of Lincoln, will be the subject of the next program in Littleton Public Library’s ongoing 2016 Summer Author Series.

   The featured speaker for the series’ next scheduled event on Wednesday, August 17, will be local author and publisher Mike Dickerman, who has just compiled a new book looking back at the fascinating life of Mr. Henry. The book, titled “The Life of James Everell Henry,” features the complete text of a privately published biography of the lumberman written in 1962 by his namesake grandson, James Everell Henry II. Additionally, Dickerman has included in an extensive appendix nearly a dozen period pieces offering additional insight into Henry, his family, and the working men of his various timber-related enterprises. His Powerpoint program will feature many historical images depicting scenes from his logging operations, along with several related modern-day photographs.

   Dickerman, from Littleton, is the author, co-author or editor of more than a dozen previously published books related to New Hampshire and the White Mountains.  His program will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 17, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s McLure Program Room.

This series will continue through the fall foliage season with presentations on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from June through October. All program will begin at 6:30p.m. in the McLure program, and are free and open to the public. Check the Adults Page for the full program schedule.
