Sharon Dunn presents Under A Dark Eye: A Family Story

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017, 5:30 p.m.

Sharon Dunn shares Under a Dark Eye: A Family Story as she unravels the mystery of her father, who began a one-man business in Penacook in 1952, which Sharon and her brother Mike Dunn transformed into a national business and local employer, Duncraft.  Dunn, like a detective, traces the lives of her father and mother through photographs, letters, a child’s drawings, bits of conversations, memories, dreams, and myriad online archives. The memoir touches on immigration, Wall Street and the Depression of the 1930’s, the psychological effects of war, women in medicine, entrepreneurship and family dysfunction. Includes over fifty photographs as well as poems. The family settled in Concord in 1948 because Dr. Gladys Ward-Dunn, a psychiatrist, took a position at the then New Hampshire State Hospital. Sharon Dunn is scheduled to appear on local radio WNHN FM on Sept. 13 at 12:30-- listen in, we're sure it'll be a great show.
