Image and Word: New Paintings by Fleur Palau
July 25 – August 29

Meet the Artist & Reading | Monday August 8 | 6 – 8 PM
Portsmouth Public Library


Artist Fleur Palau brings her work to the Portsmouth Public Library, this summer from July 25 – August 29. Come view her delightful paintings, and see the poetry that inspired each work. And join us on Monday August 8 at 6 PM for a reception with the artist, who will unveil a portrait of Robert Dunn, the Penny Poet of Portsmouth. We will be joined by author Katherine Towler, who will read some of Dunn’s work!

Fleur Palau is an American artist, trained in both New York and Florence, Italy. Ms. Palau has lived and worked in Italy for over 20 years, where she has drawn much of the inspiration for her work. She is a contemporary realist painter whose work often verges on the surreal. Her Rabbit series is a whimsical, yet sometimes moody reflection of the human psyche set in the natural world. Palau will display these works, along with other paintings inspired by literature.

Ms. Palau was a nominee for the Seacoast Spotlight on the Arts Award for "Outstanding Narrative Artist of the Seacoast 2009.” Ms. Palau’s work has been exhibited widely in Italy and the United States. She has recently written and illustrated the children's book Roberto Rabbit's Search for the Perfect Pizza. Ms. Palau is currently living in New Hampshire. Find her online at 
www.artpalau.org.

Katherine Towler is the author of The Penny Poet of Portsmouth, a memoir exploring the life of Robert Dunn, known as the Penny Poet for the little books of poems he sold on the street for a penny. Towler also recently edited the collection One of Us Is Lost: Selected Poems of Robert Dunn. Dunn lived in Portsmouth from the 1970s until his death in 2008. Towler is also author of the novels Snow Island, Evening Ferry, and Island Light, and co-editor with Ilya Kaminsky of A God in the House: Poets Talk About Faith.

Image and Word: New Paintings by Fleur Palau
July 25 – August 29

Meet the Artist & Reading | Monday August 8 | 6 – 8 PM
Portsmouth Public Library


Artist Fleur Palau brings her work to the Portsmouth Public Library, this summer from July 25 – August 29. Come view her delightful paintings, and see the poetry that inspired each work. And join us on Monday August 8 at 6 PM for a reception with the artist, who will unveil a portrait of Robert Dunn, the Penny Poet of Portsmouth. We will be joined by author Katherine Towler, who will read some of Dunn’s work!

Fleur Palau is an American artist, trained in both New York and Florence, Italy. Ms. Palau has lived and worked in Italy for over 20 years, where she has drawn much of the inspiration for her work. She is a contemporary realist painter whose work often verges on the surreal. Her Rabbit series is a whimsical, yet sometimes moody reflection of the human psyche set in the natural world. Palau will display these works, along with other paintings inspired by literature.

Ms. Palau was a nominee for the Seacoast Spotlight on the Arts Award for "Outstanding Narrative Artist of the Seacoast 2009.” Ms. Palau’s work has been exhibited widely in Italy and the United States. She has recently written and illustrated the children's book Roberto Rabbit's Search for the Perfect Pizza. Ms. Palau is currently living in New Hampshire. Find her online at 
www.artpalau.org.

Katherine Towler is the author of The Penny Poet of Portsmouth, a memoir exploring the life of Robert Dunn, known as the Penny Poet for the little books of poems he sold on the street for a penny. Towler also recently edited the collection One of Us Is Lost: Selected Poems of Robert Dunn. Dunn lived in Portsmouth from the 1970s until his death in 2008. Towler is also author of the novels Snow Island, Evening Ferry, and Island Light, and co-editor with Ilya Kaminsky of A God in the House: Poets Talk About Faith.

Using Deeds in Genealogy: A Goldmine of Information
Thursday August 18 | 6-8 PM | Hilton Garden Inn Room

Dr. Carol P. McCoy, President of Find-Your-Roots and McCoy Consulting, has been tracing her family history for over 25 years.  Often overlooked, deeds and land records can provide useful clues to finding and learning about our ancestors. This is especially true for areas where Probate Records have been destroyed. Deeds can help you find ancestors who have escaped the census taker and can provide information on family relationships, migration patterns, wealth, neighbors and more. Learn how to find them, how to read them, and how to use them to solve genealogy problems.  http://www.find-your-roots.com/

    Contact: Steve Butzel   6037661710   skbutzel@cityofportsmouth.com
   

Kelly M. Greenhill's research focuses on foreign policy, the use of military force and what are frequently called "new security challenges," including civil wars; the use of forced migration as a weapon; intervention and (counter-) insurgency; and international crime as a challenge to domestic governance. She also holds an S.M. from M.I.T., a C.S.S. from Harvard University, and a B.A. (with distinction and highest honors) in Political Economy and in Scandinavian Studies from the University of California at Berkeley.

Outside of the Department, Greenhill currently serves as Research Fellow and Chair of the Conflict, Security and Public Policy Working Group at Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Belfer Center and as Associate Editor of the journal International Security. 

Professor Greenhill is author of Weapons of Mass Migration: Forced Displacement, Coercion and Foreign Policy (Cornell Studies in Security Affairs), which was recipient of the 2011 International Studies Association's Best Book of the Year Award; and co-author and co-editor (with P. Andreas) of Sex, Drugs and Body Counts: The Politics of Numbers in Global Crime and Conflict (Cornell University Press) and (with R. Art) of the eighth edition of The Use of Force: Military Power and International Politics (R&L).

This event is co-sponsored by the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Professor Stephen Walt - International Affairs at the Library Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Steve Butzel   6037661710   skbutzel@cityofportsmouth.com
   

Stephen WaltFor the first time in recent memory, large numbers of Americans are openly questioning their country’s strategy when it comes to international affairs. An April 2016 Pew poll found that 57 percent of Americans agree that the United States should “deal with its own problems and let others deal with theirs the best they can.” Tonight, Stephen M. Walt, the Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government will share his ideas on what the United States' strategy should be globally.

Professor Walt previously taught at Princeton and at the University of Chicago, where he was Master of the Social Sciences Collegiate Division and Deputy Dean of Social Sciences.  He is a contributing editor at Foreign Policy magazine, co-chair of the editorial board of International Security,and co-editor of the Cornell Studies in Security Affairs book series. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in May 2005 and received the International Studies Association’s Distinguished Senior Scholar award in 2014.  His books include The Origins of Alliances, which received the 1988 Edgar S. Furniss National Security Book Award, and Taming American Power: The Global Response to U.S. Primacy, which was a finalist for the Lionel Gelber International Affairs Book Award and the Arthur Ross Book Prize.  His most recent book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (co-authored with John J. Mearsheimer) was a New York Times best-seller and has been translated into more than twenty foreign languages.  His weekly FP column can be read at http://www.foreignpolicy.com/voices/walt.
