STURBRIDGE — Television personality and craftsman Norm Abram — along with author and television producer Bruce Irving — will visit Old Sturbridge Village on Saturday, Nov. 5 to share their thoughts on what makes New England a great place to live and visit.

The event will include a buffet lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at OSV's Oliver Wight Tavern, followed by a book signing opportunity. The lunch will include such classic New England recipes as native corn succotash, steamed mussels, mini beef turnovers, grilled chicken, and apple brown betty. Tickets for the event (including lunch) are $65 per person and $55 for OSV members.

"We are very excited to have Norm and Bruce come to the Village for this event," said Ann Lindblad, OSV's director of Marketing. "Norm is an icon for his many years of great work on 'This Old House,' and he has a devoted fan base. We anticipate having many guests who want to come and meet Norm and Bruce."

Abram, who has been an honorary OSV trustee since 2010 after serving on the Board of Trustees for nine years, is also the star of the long-running program "New Yankee Workshop," although he is best known for his role on "This Old House." He has a deep attachment to OSV, and many of his wood working projects are in fact reproductions of Village artifacts.
