Treasure from the Isles of Shoals

NH Humanities Council scholar J. Dennis Robinson will appear at 7:00 PM Friday, September 18, 2015, at the East Kingston Public Library, 47 Maplevale Road, East Kingston, NH.

Dennis will present a program on Treasure from the Isles of Shoals: How new archaeology is changing old history. There is treasure here but not the pirate kind. Scientific “digs” on Smuttynose Island are changing New England history. A longtime Smuttynose steward, he explores the truth behind the romantic legends of Gosport Harbor in this colorful show-and-tell presentation.

Dennis has published over 1,000 articles on New Hampshire history and culture. His books for young readers include biographies of Jesse James and Lord Baltimore. His hardcover histories of Strawbery Banke Museum and historic Wentworth by the Sea Hotel both received honors from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH). His two new books on privateering and the War of 1812 will appear in 2011. Robinson is also editor of SeacoastNH.com, a Web site about NH history and culture that attracts thousands of visitors daily. His lectures are designed to make history both entertaining and accessible to all audiences.
The New Hampshire Humanities Council provided a grant to make this program possible. Learn more about the council and its work at www.nhhc.org.

This program, sponsored by the Friends of the East Kingston Public Library, is free and open to the public.

Rebecca Rule presents “Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting

The Friends of the East Kingston Public Library will host Rebecca Rule on June 3, 2015 at 7:00 PM at the East Kingston Public Library, 47 Maplevale Road, East Kingston, NH. Drawing on research from her book Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire – the Present, the Past, and the Future, Rebecca regales audiences with stories of the rituals, traditions and history of town meeting, including the perennial characters, the literature, the humor, and the wisdom of this uniquely New England institution.

Rebecca has collected stories illustrating what’s special about this rocky old state of New Hampshire for more than fifteen years, and includes many of them in her new book Headin’ for the Rhubarb – A NH Dictionary (Kinda). Her other books include Live Free and Eat Pie – A Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire; Could Have Been Worse – True Stories, Embellishments and Outright Lies; and The Best Revenge, which won the NH Writers Project award for Outstanding Work of Fiction. New Hampshire magazine named her “Thalia: Muse of Comedy” in its list of Granite State muses. She also hosts an interview show, the “NH Authors Series”, on NHPTV.

Rebecca says, “The great thing about collecting stories is they’re free and you don’t have to dust them. Stories not only speak to us of history, they hold our identity.” In this program she’ll tell some of her favorites (especially the funny ones) and invite audience members to tell some of their own. To find out more about Rebecca visit her website at www.rebeccarulenh.com

The New Hampshire Humanities Council provided a grant to make this program possible. Learn more about the council and its work at www.nhhc.org.

This program is free and open to the public.
