10:30 AMFriends Book Discussion: On the Black Hill



Description:  
Come and Discuss the book
On the Black Hill
by Bruce Chatwin
with the Friends of the Library.

"Chatwin’s On the Black Hills echoes the setting and characterization we found in Haruf’s Plainsong and Eventide. Written roughly twenty years before Haruf introduced readers to the McPherson brothers, Chatwin describes the solitary lives of identical twin brothers, Lewis and Benjamin Jones, who live an isolated and repressed existence in the rural, rugged Welsh countryside. However, unlike Haruf, Chatwin gives us two characters that, although they sleep in the same bed, are separated by different and disturbing longings. One can’t help but wonder if these seemly quiet men are, in fact, tormented restless souls.
 
We are delighted to welcome back Dr. Suzanne Brown of Dartmouth College to lead this discussion. Dr. Brown has told me that On the Black Hill is one of her favorite novels and I cannot wait to hear what she has to say about it..." Susan Merrifield

7:00 PMSongs of Emigration: Storytelling Through Traditional Irish Music



Description:  
Master Fiddler 
Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki 

relays some of the adventures, misadventures, and emotions experienced by Irish emigrants through traditional music. The focus is on songs about leaving Ireland, sometimes focusing on the reasons for leaving (a man who is driven from his land by English persecution), sometimes revealing what happened upon arrival (an immigrant drafted into the Union army during the Civil War), and sometimes exploring the universal feeling of homesickness of a stranger in a strange land (a factory worker in London missing his home in County Clare). The presenter discusses the historical context of these songs, interspersing their stories with tunes from Ireland that made their way into New England’s musical repertoire, played on his fiddle or guitar.

10:30 AMFriends Book Discussion: On the Road



Description:  
Come and discuss the book
On the Road
by Jack Kerouac

with the Friends of the Library.

"Both the author and his book have become American icons, but how many of us have actually read this classic beat generation saga? Set in post-war America, Kerouac’s novel introduces us to Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty who travel the country experiencing wine, women and song and much more. Seemingly 20th century Walt Whitmans, both men are restless and out to experience the underside of the Eisenhower Era.
 
I will lead this discussion of this novel that introduced America to the Beat Generation. As Professor Emerita of English Education at Lesley University, I have taught Contemporary American Literature. I will enjoy sharing my understanding of Kerouac’s unique work of so-called fiction...." Susan Merrifield

7:00 PMAn Evening of Robert Frost with Stephen Collins



Description:  
An Evening of Frost is a unique, interactive performance that begins with a short biographical introduction into the poet's life. Robert Frost is greatly misunderstood. Certain people, some academics and politicians included, have tried to pigeonhole him, however the man is far more complicated than the surface indicates. This is, after all, a man who voted for Eugene Debs, one of the best known Socialists of the United States, but was vehemently opposed to Franklin Roosevelt and "The New Deal". It is this man that is seen in his poems that are often dialectic between chaos and order.

As part of the performance, an open discussion of the following poems will include:
    "A Tuft of Flowers"
    "Mending Wall"
    "Birches"
    "After Apple Picking"
    "Acquainted with the Night"
    "Desert Places" 

Stephen is hoping that people will come having read these poems, willing to discuss them.

The performance closes with a dramatic reading of Frost's masterful use of blank verse in the hauntingly memorable "The Death of the Hired Man".

Please join us for this one-man performance with actor-lecturer-teacher Stephen Collins.

7:00 PMRobert Rogers of the Rangers



Description:  
On a frontier where individualism flourished, New Hampshire’s consummate woodsman was just the leader to bring his men back safely from deep in dangerous country, even in stormy, freezing weather. "The famous Major Rogers’" renown was such that he became perhaps the single-best-known American on both sides of the Atlantic. In October 1765, a private audience with young King George III led, eleven months later, to the launching of an expedition to find the long-dreamed-of Northwest passage to the Pacific – forty years before Lewis and Clark.
But who was this frontier farmer, raised in Dunbarton? Thirty years after his death in obscurity in May 1795, Rogers' exploits were mined by James Fenimore Cooper for his best-selling novels, and in the 20
th and 21st centuries, for other histories, novels, movies, and television.
George Morrison takes us along on a journey from colonial North America to the 21
st century.

365 Days of Mischief and Adventure on Mount Washington


     From the vaulted heights of New England's highest peak, Travel Writer and Journalist Dan Szczesny spent a year exploring the very heart of the White Mountains. But Mount Washington—home of the world's worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it's the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries-old observatory, Mount Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan captured it all in his new book.

7:00 PMMoultonborough Historical Society meeting



Description:  
From Guns to Gramophones:
Civil War and the Technology that Shaped America

 
Carrie Brown explores the technological triumph that helped save the Union and then transformed the nation. During the Civil War, northern industry produced a million and a half rifles, along with tens of thousands of pistols and carbines. How did the North produce all of those weapons? The answer lies in new machinery and methods for producing guns with interchangeable parts. Once the system of mass production had been tested and perfected, what happened after the war? In the period from 1870 to 1910 new factory technology and new print media fueled the development of mass consumerism. While this program tells a broad, national story, it focuses on the critical and somewhat surprising role of Vermont and New Hampshire in producing industrial technology that won the war and changed American life.

 
Carrie Brown holds a PhD in American Literature and Folklore from the University of Virginia. She is an independent scholar who also works as a freelance history curator for museums in New England. She has curated two exhibitions on the Civil War for the American Precision Museum, as well as exhibitions on the history of aviation, the early years of the automobile, and the bicycle. The author of two books and many articles and exhibit catalogs, Brown delights in finding connections between changing technology and the evolution of popular culture.

Friends Book Discussion: On the Black Hill
Come and Discuss the book
On the Black Hill
by Bruce Chatwin
with the Friends of the Library.

"Chatwin’s On the Black Hills echoes the setting and characterization we found in Haruf’s Plainsong and Eventide. Written roughly twenty years before Haruf introduced readers to the McPherson brothers, Chatwin describes the solitary lives of identical twin brothers, Lewis and Benjamin Jones, who live an isolated and repressed existence in the rural, rugged Welsh countryside. However, unlike Haruf, Chatwin gives us two characters that, although they sleep in the same bed, are separated by different and disturbing longings. One can’t help but wonder if these seemly quiet men are, in fact, tormented restless souls.
 
We are delighted to welcome back Dr. Suzanne Brown of Dartmouth College to lead this discussion. Dr. Brown has told me that On the Black Hill is one of her favorite novels and I cannot wait to hear what she has to say about it..." Susan Merrifield

Songs of Emigration: Storytelling Through Traditional Irish Music
Master Fiddler 
Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki 

relays some of the adventures, misadventures, and emotions experienced by Irish emigrants through traditional music. The focus is on songs about leaving Ireland, sometimes focusing on the reasons for leaving (a man who is driven from his land by English persecution), sometimes revealing what happened upon arrival (an immigrant drafted into the Union army during the Civil War), and sometimes exploring the universal feeling of homesickness of a stranger in a strange land (a factory worker in London missing his home in County Clare). The presenter discusses the historical context of these songs, interspersing their stories with tunes from Ireland that made their way into New England’s musical repertoire, played on his fiddle or guitar.

Friends Book Discussion: On the Road
Come and discuss the book
On the Road
by Jack Kerouac

with the Friends of the Library.

"Both the author and his book have become American icons, but how many of us have actually read this classic beat generation saga? Set in post-war America, Kerouac’s novel introduces us to Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty who travel the country experiencing wine, women and song and much more. Seemingly 20th century Walt Whitmans, both men are restless and out to experience the underside of the Eisenhower Era.
 
I will lead this discussion of this novel that introduced America to the Beat Generation. As Professor Emerita of English Education at Lesley University, I have taught Contemporary American Literature. I will enjoy sharing my understanding of Kerouac’s unique work of so-called fiction...." Susan Merrifield

New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell
Quilts tell stories, and quilt history is full of myths and misinformation as well as heart-warming tales of service and tradition. Quilting is NOT just an American art; nearly every world culture that has cold weather uses quilted textiles. 
Pam Weeks weaves world history, women’s history, industrial history and just plain wonderful stories into her presentation. Participants are invited to bring one quilt for identification and/or story sharing. Prompted in part by the material culture at hand, the presenter may speak about fashion fads, the Colonial Revival, quilt making for Civil War soldiers, and anything else quilt related she can squeeze in.

An Evening of Robert Frost with Stephen Collins
An Evening of Frost is a unique, interactive performance that begins with a short biographical introduction into the poet's life. Robert Frost is greatly misunderstood. Certain people, some academics and politicians included, have tried to pigeonhole him, however the man is far more complicated than the surface indicates. This is, after all, a man who voted for Eugene Debs, one of the best known Socialists of the United States, but was vehemently opposed to Franklin Roosevelt and "The New Deal". It is this man that is seen in his poems that are often dialectic between chaos and order.

As part of the performance, an open discussion of the following poems will include:
    "A Tuft of Flowers"
    "Mending Wall"
    "Birches"
    "After Apple Picking"
    "Acquainted with the Night"
    "Desert Places" 

Stephen is hoping that people will come having read these poems, willing to discuss them.

The performance closes with a dramatic reading of Frost's masterful use of blank verse in the hauntingly memorable "The Death of the Hired Man".

Please join us for this one-man performance with actor-lecturer-teacher Stephen Collins.

Robert Rogers of the Rangers
On a frontier where individualism flourished, New Hampshire’s consummate woodsman was just the leader to bring his men back safely from deep in dangerous country, even in stormy, freezing weather. "The famous Major Rogers’" renown was such that he became perhaps the single-best-known American on both sides of the Atlantic. In October 1765, a private audience with young King George III led, eleven months later, to the launching of an expedition to find the long-dreamed-of Northwest passage to the Pacific – forty years before Lewis and Clark.
But who was this frontier farmer, raised in Dunbarton? Thirty years after his death in obscurity in May 1795, Rogers' exploits were mined by James Fenimore Cooper for his best-selling novels, and in the 20
th and 21st centuries, for other histories, novels, movies, and television.
George Morrison takes us along on a journey from colonial North America to the 21
st century.

The White Mountain:
365 Days of Mischief and Adventure on Mount Washington


     From the vaulted heights of New England's highest peak, Travel Writer and Journalist Dan Szczesny spent a year exploring the very heart of the White Mountains. But Mount Washington—home of the world's worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it's the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries-old observatory, Mount Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan captured it all in his new book.

From Guns to Gramophones:
Civil War and the Technology that Shaped America

 
Carrie Brown explores the technological triumph that helped save the Union and then transformed the nation. During the Civil War, northern industry produced a million and a half rifles, along with tens of thousands of pistols and carbines. How did the North produce all of those weapons? The answer lies in new machinery and methods for producing guns with interchangeable parts. Once the system of mass production had been tested and perfected, what happened after the war? In the period from 1870 to 1910 new factory technology and new print media fueled the development of mass consumerism. While this program tells a broad, national story, it focuses on the critical and somewhat surprising role of Vermont and New Hampshire in producing industrial technology that won the war and changed American life.

 
Carrie Brown holds a PhD in American Literature and Folklore from the University of Virginia. She is an independent scholar who also works as a freelance history curator for museums in New England. She has curated two exhibitions on the Civil War for the American Precision Museum, as well as exhibitions on the history of aviation, the early years of the automobile, and the bicycle. The author of two books and many articles and exhibit catalogs, Brown delights in finding connections between changing technology and the evolution of popular culture.

Rationing began in 1942 with tires and by 1943 ration coupons were required to purchase coffee, sugar, meat, cheese, butter, lard, margarine, canned foods, dried fruits, jam, gasoline, bicycles, fuel oil, clothing, silk or nylon stockings, and shoes. The automotive and appliance industries quit producing until after the war. Find out how Americans coped during this difficult time.
