Join us for an informal discussion with Denis Boucher. Denis' book is short, but spans his 31 years working at Nichols & Stone from 'Floor Boy' to Plant Manager. He covers topics from imports and American made items, the stress of knowing the company was going to close, and watching the machinery they worked on everyday be auctioned off and torn out of the building. He also explains why furniture is a "people job", why he's always flipping chairs over to look at the bottom of the seat, and much more. You are welcome to ask questions and share your own experiences. You do not have to have read his book yet to participate in the conversation. If you'd like, you can sit and read his story during open hours at the Heywood Memorial Library in the local history room or in the Chair City Community Workshop.
