Abstract:

"An entire generation fondly remembers Arlo Guthrie's song "Alice's Restaurant" and director Arthur Penn's film of the same name. In the song's mixture of whimsy and anger, moral outrage and absurdist humor, disaffected and disillusioned young people recognized themselves and their own responses to American life - Arlo was their collective voice and the church-home of Alice was the setting." "Arlo, Alice, & Anglicans: The Lives of a New England Church is the first book to recount the story of the simple wooden structure that went on to Woodstock-era fame after its deconsecration and what that building meant to the communities it served. On the surface, it may seem that an Episcopalian congregation from turn of the century New England has little in common with the rebellious youths in the movie Alice's Restaurant. Yet there is much they share. Each group had its dream of the future, a dream that, for a time, drew people to this same sacred place. Then, all too suddenly, times changed; the communities disbanded; the building remained an empty shell for a new community to give it a new life."--BOOK JACKET.
