Evening with the Author -- Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Whiton Room. Susan
Edgecomb will present "Clearing in the West: Navigating the Journey Through Loss,
Grief, and Healing"
When Edgecomb's brother, Hingham resident Lt. Curtis E. Chase, was killed in Vietnam
in May of 1967, the Chases became a Gold Star Family. Her father died just two and a
half years later, and when their daughter was just three, her husband died of a heart
Following these sad experiences, Edgecomb felt she needed to find her own way to
learn to cope, grow, and meet the challenges of finding a new self and a meaningful life.
With support, she learned it is essential to experience feelings of sadness and loss in
order to heal.
Edgecomb, who grew up in Hingham in the 50's and 60's, will share what she learned
about loss and grief with others who are struggling. Hers is not a “how to book” but
rather a highly personal sharing of how her own path has made her more resilient and
constructive in her approach to what life brings. Registration is not required.
Another Evening with the Author event is planned for Thursday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in
the Whiton Room. In presenting "The Navigation Case" Hingham author John Happ will
share a fascinating piece of his father's -- and our country's -- history, documenting an
amazing story of war in the Pacific, from Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Midway Island, and
Iwo Jima, up to the catastrophes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Happ is a contributing author to the "Journal of the American Revolution" and other
publications. Journalistic assignments in Germany, Switzerland, the Philippines, and
Japan contributed greatly to his research for his first book. No registration is required.
Dance Along with Tracy Durso -- Saturday, Nov. 27, at 10 a.m. in the Whiton Room.
Children ages 16 months to four years are invited to join in the fun of this movement-
filled dance program, led by Tracy Durso. Because space in this event is limited,
