HOOSIER STORYTELLERS: ANDREW CHINWORTH
Thursday, February 28th @ 6:30pm
Hoosier Storytellers is a new NMPL series that will feature local residents with fascinating stories to tell! Our first Hoosier Storyteller is North Manchester native, Andrew Chinworth. Chinworth has traveled and lived in many locations, but none more interesting than the house he built in a neighboring community -- Lagro, Indiana. Chinworth has built a cabin in the woods powered by solar energy. Join us for a presentation that will outline his process and discuss the reasoning behind this project!
