Gil Bean will be talking about his book “By the Breath of Their People”. By the Breath of Their People" is a story about vision, purpose, the link between people and the land, and connections that surpass time. As one man struggles to find his destiny while his people are being exiled from their homeland and the other attempts to gain a sense of perspective after human remains are unearthed on his property, both question their purpose in the world and grapple with hope and longing. Combining the diverse perspectives of a young Lenape Indian and a modern-day man of means, "By the Breath of Their People" is a deeply felt history of the land and the people who call it home.

Gil Bean was born in Easton, Penn. – where much of "By the Breath of Their People" – is set. After graduating from Bowling Green State University in Ohio, he pursued a career in technology that took him to locations throughout the eastern half of the United States. He eventually returned to the Delaware River Valley, moving to the Philadelphia area in 1995. The father of four grown children, he currently lives in Mays Landing, N.J. with his wife, Deborah. "By the Breath of Their People" is Bean’s first novel.
