The Leatherman: An American Vagabond
Tuesday, January 24th at 2:00 p.m.
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 the circuit he followed repeated every 34 days. 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.” Jon Scott Bennett, a student filmmaker pursuing a B.A. in History, will present his extraordinary documentary and will follow with a question-and-answer session. Registration begins January 10.
