The Habit of Turning the World Upside Down
Listen to Howard and Prof. Paul Searls discussing Romaine Tenney on Vermont Public Radio’s Vermont Edition.

Now Vermont is planning a permanent memorial. Listen here.

Reviews of Dwelling in Possibility
Interview with The Wire, Portsmouth, NH: “Dwelling in Possibility isn’t a guide to de-cluttering a home (though Mansfield does write about clutter), nor does it offer step-by-step instructions on how to make a place, whether private or public, feel homey. Instead, it invites the reader to dream about different houses, different lives, and different times and places. It’s a book about being, not doing.”
* A thoughtfully curated journal of contemporary art that combines all art forms & dispenses with unnecessary jargon
* A place for readers to get experienced advice about process, business, & the challenges of the creative life
* (And literally…) A Welsh word for the rushing sound a grandfather clock makes before it strikes.
