Author Sarah Shea Smith will discuss her book They Sawed Up a Storm about a group of New Hampshire women who operated a sawmill on the shores of Turkey Pond in Concord, New Hampshire in 1942. The sawmill was built by the U.S. Forest Service to salvage what remained of the logs stored in the water from the hurricane of 1938. Formerly Professor at the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, Smith has worked as a hardwood lumber inspector, a teacher, and a door-and-trim carpenter. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
