MANCHESTER - Award-winning producer and director Daniel Karslake will deliver the inaugural talk for Hildene's Last Best Hope series, which will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Hildene.

Karslake will explore what it means to rise above cynicism and to find fulfillment in choosing action over apathy in order to make the world a better place. The Last Best Hope series seeks to inspire people to become a part of something larger than themselves echoing Hildene's mission: Values into Action.

While this program is free and open to all, reservations are strongly recommended as seating is limited.
