    How to Be a Man

    Andre Dubus III and Anthony D'Aries explore what it means to be a 21st century man! Join us as they take on masculinity, violance and the dark legacies of larger-than-life fathers. Dubus, one of Newburyport’s most loved authors, will read from his beautiful, gritty memoir, Townie, a spellbinding narrative of youth, violence and reconciliation set in the mill towns of New England. D’Aries will read from his explosive new memoir, The Language of Men, which begins in Vietnam, where the author’s wife is teaching health and anatomy classes for sex workers in Ho Chi Minh City. There, D’Aries explores his father’s war stories, but finds, instead, the harrowing sources of his own troubling behavior.
