Jud Hale, Yankee Magazine and Old Farmer's Almanac editor and writer, with The Education of a Yankee

Join Gibson's for an evening with Yankee Magazine and Old Farmer's Almanac editor and writer Jud Hale!

Originally published in 1987, The Education of a Yankee is Judson Hale’s engaging memoir about the grand, eccentric, and occasionally tragic history of his very unconventional family. Born into Boston’s very proper Brahmin world, Hale was the son of a wealthy father who loved sailing and horseback riding, and a beautiful and talented mother who sang professionally. But readers expecting a conventional account of New England privilege will be delightfully surprised. The fate of Hale’s older brother, Drake, led his parents to embark on a dramatic, extravagant, and visionary undertaking that changed the family’s history and brought a remarkable adventure to the small town of Vanceboro, Maine.

In this new edition, Hale updates his memoir to include recent revelations, including Drake’s late-in-life diagnosis of autism.
