Peter Yarrow will sing songs and speak about and sign his new book, Peter, Paul, & Mary: Fifty Years in Music and Life, on Monday, December 15th at 7:30pm at *First Congregational Church*.

About the Book:
Peter Paul and Mary: Fifty Years in Music and Life visually tells us the story of Peter, Paul, and Mary and their music, through their own words and with iconic images that follow their passionate, fifty-year journey to the center of America’s heart. The very best of thousands of photographs taken over five decades follow them from their earliest performances in the 1960s. Through these images, you can feel and almost hear the trio’s songs calling for a better world as you see them performing with a conviction that became the sound track of a generation’s awakening to conscience, to activism, and to a new dream for all of humankind. Peter, Paul, and Mary’s songs of defiant hope are still a powerful part of our American consciousness, and this book reenacts the history of how the trio marked our lives with their indelible stamp of honesty of the sort we yearn to recreate in our own time—for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

Vouchers to attend are $8 and are good for $5 off Peter Paul & Mary or a purchase on December 15th. Purchase tickets in advance, over the phone, or at the door.
