"Meet the Author" & book signing - Lori White Cotter

The Hampton Historical Society, in conjunction with the library, will present a talk by Hampton's own Lori White Cotter on Tuesday April 20 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Lane Room at the library. Ms. Cotter, Hampton teacher, historian and Toppan descendant will present the long overdue work of Edmund Willoughby Toppan (1808-1845) Toppan's History of Hampton - The Early Settlers 1630-1730. This never before published book tells the tale of the early settlers of Hampton, N.H.

Ms. Cotter transcribed Edmund Toppan's handwritten notes, updated references and dates, and edited this seminal work on early Hampton history. She will share both this history and her efforts to publish it.

Lori will be available before her talk from 5:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.and after her talk from 7:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. for book signing and questions.

For more information on Ms. Cotter's presentation contact Bill Keating, 926-2813. The public is welcome to attend free of charge and refreshments will be served.
