"The Leatherman: An American Vagabond"
A Documentary Film by Jon Scott Bennett
Saturday, March 18 at 7pm

When a strange unkempt man dressed head to toe in leather began traveling the roads of New York and Connecticut, the people of the region immediately took notice. He hardly spoke, only ever engaging in conversation to ask for food, water, and tobacco. Local fascination grew as it was realized that the route he followed would bring him back a little more than a month later. Yet his name, origins, and reasons for wandering have never been explained. This created an air of mystery around the figure who has come to be known as "The Leatherman."

Local filmmaker Jon Scott Bennett will present his film and participate in a Q&A afterward.

Free and open to all! This program is not appropriate for young children.
