Seeking Parmenter book launch event


For our Seeking Parmenter book launch event, author Charles Butterfield took us on a walk through Butterfield Farm and pointed out several things discussed in the book—including his "home away from home" on the land. The group met afterwards at the First Presbyterian Church in Antrim for a reading and signing.
