Fierce Females: Women in Art

Fierce Females: Women in Art

In observance of Women's History Month, join DPL Adult Services and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Jane Oneail to present Fierce Females: Women in Art via zoom.  

Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? This program examines the history of women in art in brief and then explores the lives, careers and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, and Frida Kahlo are some of the artists discussed in this program.

About the presenter: Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a master's in Art History from Boston University and a master's in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at the NH Institute of Art.

This program is free and open to all, hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Author Talk! A Libertarian Walked Into A Bear with Matt Hongoltz-Hetling

Author Talk! A Libertarian Walked Into A Bear with author/journalist Matt Hongoltz-Hetling

Join DPL to welcome award-winning journalist and author Matt Hongoltz-Hetling for a discussion of his September 2020 title, A Libertarian Walked Into A Bear. Once upon a time, a group of libertarians got together and hatched the Free Town Project, a plan to take over an American town and completely eliminate its government. In 2004, they set their sights on Grafton, NH, a barely populated settlement with one paved road. When they descended on Grafton, public funding for pretty much everything shrank: the fire department, the library, the schoolhouse. State and federal laws became meek suggestions, scarcely heard in the town’s thick wilderness. The anything-goes atmosphere soon caught the attention of Grafton’s neighbors: the bears. Freedom-loving citizens ignored hunting laws and regulations on food disposal. They built a tent city in an effort to get off the grid. The bears smelled food and opportunity. A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear is the sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying tale of what happens when a government disappears into the woods. Complete with gunplay, adventure, and backstabbing politicians, this is the ultimate story of a quintessential American experiment — to live free or die, perhaps from a bear.

About the author: 

Matt Hongoltz-Hetling is a Vermont-based writer whose longform journalism has appeared in Popular Science, Foreign Policy, USA Today, Atavist Magazine and The Weather Channel, among other outlets. His investigative work has spotlighted flood insurance challenges for Missouri's riverboat casinos, maternal health challenges in Sierra Leone, the potential collapse of Maine's lobster industry, and oversight problems in the federal Section 8 Housing program, which led to national reforms.

He is a recipient of the George Polk Award, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, and a Maine Journalist of the Year. He was recognized for excellence in the 2018 Best In Business Awards from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW), received the 2019 Distinguished Science Journalism award from the American Meteorological Association, and was selected for inclusion in the Best American Nonrequired Reading 2019 anthology.

His first book, A Libertarian Walks Into a Bear, hit bookstores in 2020.

Present Moment, Prolific Moment: Using Mindfulness to Write with NH Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary

Present Moment, Prolific Moment: Using Mindfulness to Write with NH Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary

Please join DPL and the NHHC to welcome NH Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary in celebration of National Poetry Month to present Present Moment, Prolific Moment: Using Mindfulness to Write.

Writing can become much more fulfilling if we think of it as happening right Now. Much is lost when we overlook the present moment because we forfeit rewarding writing experiences in exchange for stress, frustration, boredom, fear, and shortchanged invention and creativity (it's a poor bargain). Through mindfulness, we can reduce our writing apprehension and the writing blocks that come from future- or past-oriented thinking. Every moment can become a prolific moment: we can write more quickly and with greater ease of mind. In this presentation, we discuss writing tools that emerge when present time is highlighted: impermanence, audience demons, monkey mind self-talk, and preconceptions about writing ability and writing task. Participants will learn basic strategies to incorporate mindfulness into their writing lives.

About the presenter: Alexandria Peary serves as New Hampshire's Poet Laureate. She holds MFAs in Poetry from the University of Iowa and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a PhD in English from the University of New Hampshire. She is the author of six books and over 150 shorter pieces in leading literary and scholarly journals. Her work has received the Iowa Poetry Prize, the Slope Editions Book Prize, and Writing Studies. She is a professor in the English Department at Salem State University and lives in Londonderry, NH, with her husband and two daughters.

This program is free, open to all, hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council. This program will be conducted via zoom. Please register here to receive the link.

Strange Terrain: How Not to Get Poetry and Let it Get You Instead

Strange Terrain: How Not to Get Poetry and Let it Get You Instead

In observance of National Poetry Month, please join DPL to welcome former New Hampshire State Poet Laureate, Alice B. Fogel presenting Strange Terrain: How Not to “Get” Poetry and Let it Get You Instead. Alice Fogel takes you through seven simple steps, and one hard one, toward understanding and appreciating more elements of poetry than you ever thought you could. In the end you'll see that you already knew them all along. This workshop is your quick, self-help program for "getting" poems. Fogel helps you develop your own confident relationship with poetry's shapes, words, images, sounds, emotions, mysteries, and more.

About the presenter: Alice B. Fogel has been the New Hampshire State Poet Laureate.

Strange Terrain: How Not to Get Poetry and Let it Get You Instead

In observance of National Poetry Month, please join DPL to welcome former New Hampshire State Poet Laureate, Alice B. Fogel presenting Strange Terrain: How Not to “Get” Poetry and Let it Get You Instead. Alice Fogel takes you through seven simple steps, and one hard one, toward understanding and appreciating more elements of poetry than you ever thought you could. In the end you'll see that you already knew them all along. This workshop is your quick, self-help program for "getting" poems. Fogel helps you develop your own confident relationship with poetry's shapes, words, images, sounds, emotions, mysteries, and more.

Storytelling in the Digital Age - a DPL Adult Summer Reading Program

Storytelling in the Digital Age

Join DPL and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Ann McClellan to DPL's Adult Summer Reading program line-up! 

More and more, the contemporary reading public is turning to digital technology as a means of experiencing literature. The Internet, hyperlink technology, the popularity of e-readers, and readers' desire for multimedia experiences seem, on the surface, to put the future of the book at risk. Scholars for decades have been lamenting the rise of technology and prophesying the death of the book and the humanities. However, rather than seeing one technology (the Internet) defeat another (the printed book), perhaps we are witnessing the dawn of a new genre: digital literature. In an interactive discussion, participants will explore how technology is affecting how we read, write, and experience stories. We will learn about the history and development of electronic literature and hypertext media, the rise of social media and how it affects digital literature (fan fiction, online role playing games, Twitterature, etc.); and the rise of the emerging field of transmedia storytelling where media conglomerates purposefully design texts to work across multiple media platforms.

About the presenter: Ann McClellan is professor of English and Associate Provost at Plymouth State University where she teaches 19th and 20th century British literature. She is the author of How British Women Writers Transformed the Campus Novel (2012), Sherlock's World: Fanfiction and the Reimagining of BBC's Sherlock (2018), and several articles on cultural topics ranging from servants on screen to social media, fan fiction, and Sherlock Holmes. She is currently writing a new monograph on race and Sherlock Holmes adaptations.

This program is free and open to all. It is hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
