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.

The East Kingston Public Library is holding a music concert in the library on Saturday, August 23rd featuring local songwriter/guitarist Bob Moore. The concert is a 1-hour program starting at 2:00 PM.

The concert will include Moore performing newly composed songs and poems and also feature some of his earlier work. He’ll also share some contemporary songs composed by local and national artists.

Following a retreat and having the chance to read some Emerson and other New England poets, he began spending his time delving into poetry, and self-published a collection of poems in 1997 entitled, “A Bridge with a View”. In 2009, he released a second collection of poems entitled “Unexpected Colors”, published by Beech River Books.

In 2013, Moore released a collection of instrumentals for solo guitar also entitled “A Bridge with a View”. Moore is host of The First Friday Coffeehouse held monthly every first Friday of the month at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Exeter in Exeter, NH.

He also performs with the acoustic-driven trio Sylvan Roots. By day, he works as a science teacher at Pelham High School in Pelham, NH.
