Join author Nancy- Ann Feren for a talk and book signing on her new book: Not Your Average Travelers : 40 Years of Adventures in All the U.S. National Parks

Nancy-Ann Feren is a retired 5th grade teacher. She has a BA from Wellesley College and an MA in Teaching from the University of New Hampshire. She and her husband, Dick, live in Manchester, NH where they both grew up. Nancy-Ann loves spending time with her family, baking cookies with her grandchildren, reading, walking, camping in a two-person tent, and traveling.

Nancy-Ann Feren and her husband, Dick, are definitely NOT your average travelers. They have explored all the sites in the National Park System, driving to most of them and camping whenever possible. This book chronicles 40 years of their memorable adventures in the national parks while they learned about and enjoyed the history and nature found in each place. It includes stories about bush plane flights to remote parks in Alaska, canoe trips through mangrove swamps in Florida, and staying with a native family in American Samoa as well as suggestions for a successful camping experience.

Every four years, Manchester is visited by numerous presidential candidates, campaigning in the New Hampshire Primary.  This year, the Millyard Museum is showcasing a chronological history of this process through images of candidates through the years as they engaged with Manchester voters in their homes, on the streets and in the many iconic watering holes that are the lifeblood of so many campaigns.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent, you're certain to see some of your favorite candidates - Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama - as they meet with your friends and neighbors in their quest to win election to our nation's highest office. We believe Manchester is the crucible of the Presidential Primary process in New Hampshire, and with this exhibit, we demonstrate our pivotal role in American political history.

Thank you to our Exhibit Sponsor!
