    5 East Main St, Warner NH

    Elizabeth Marshall Thomas is the author of 11 books, most recently her autobiography A Million Years With You.

    Her first book, The Harmless People, arose while she was in college at Radcliffe, after her father organized a series of expeditions to the Kalahari interior in Southwest Africa (now Namibia) to study Bushmen, also called "San," in an area which then was unexplored. The Bushmen lived by hunting and gathering in what she calls "The Old Way" (that's the title of another of her books), some of their encampments had been occupied continuously for at least 35,000 years, and this, she says, was the way in which all human kind had lived since our species came out of the trees. The experience, she says, became the lens through which she views the world.

    Tickets are $10 each or a packet of 4 for $32 at the office, MainStreet BookEnds, and on-line at WarnerHistorical.org.
