Creating Chapbooks

Making Little Books in a Big World
Ever heard of a chapbook? This delightful little book format, once sold by traveling salesmen in England centuries ago, has made a comeback in recent years thanks to accessible printing technology and online tutorials. It's also the perfect format for experimenting with poetry. Come find out how poets and small presses are using chapbooks to keep the book-arts relevant and thriving in our digital age. And for those wishing to join in the experimentation, two simple chapbook designs will be demonstrated with take-home directions provided.

Swing by the library function room in May for a screening of the animated hit "Early man," starring Tom Hiddleston. Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, and Richard Ayoade, and from the people that brought you Wallace & Gromit.

Feel free to bring you lunch.  Dessert and beverages will be served.  Mexico, Maine, 1963: The Wood family is much like its close, Catholic, immigrant neighbors, all dependent on the fathers’ wages from the Oxford Paper Company. But when Dad suddenly dies on his way to work, Mum and the four deeply connected Wood girls are set adrift. When We Were the Kennedys is the story of how a family, a town, and then a nation mourns and finds the strength to move on.

Colonial Stories

The stories we hear from our families tell us who we are and how we should view the world. What tales shaped New England identities in the 17th and 18th centuries? In this performance, storyteller/historian Jo Radner juxtaposes Native American oral traditions and stories told by her own New England ancestors to reveal a complex colonial "middle ground" in which English settlers and Native peoples saw one another as defenders and trespassers, pursuers and refugees, relatives and aliens, kind neighbors and ruthless destroyers.

Storyteller Jo Radner received her PhD from Harvard University. Before returning to her family home in western Maine as a freelance storyteller and oral historian, she spent 31 years as professor at American University in Washington, D.C., teaching literature, folklore, American studies, Celtic studies, and storytelling. She has published books and articles in all those fields, and is now writing a book titled Performing the Paper: Rural Self-Improvement in Northern New England, about a 19th-century village tradition of creating and performing handwritten literary newspapers. She is past president of the American Folklore Society and the National Storytelling Network.

Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library.  Open to the public.  Light refreshments served.

Meredith Library Genealogy Club

Author Mj Pettingill returns to discuss The Angel's Lament the sequel to her popular book Etched in Granite about life on the Caroll County Poor Farm in 1872.  In “Etched in Granite,” we came to know Abigail, Silas, Nellie, and the others. Their tales, carefully woven together, bound by their afflictions and the will to survive, do not end here. The stories hidden beneath anonymous graves go well beyond the discovery of the 298, spanning generations, oceans, and even continents. This flame may be that of a single candle, subtle light within infinite darkness, with a promise to burn brightly.

For the Hodgdon sisters — Abigail and Sarah — 1872 is a year of reckoning. Alone and determined, 17-year-old Sarah Hodgdon boards a train, trading farm life in New Hampshire for the textile mills of Fall River. Woefully disillusioned, she finds herself trapped within the confines of a brutal factory and a filthy, crowded tenement.

Her torment wildly escalates when she learns the fate of her family —her sister locked away in the County Farm, and her mother’s remains scattered amongst the charred ruins of their beloved home,

About to drown in a sea of spindles, she meets lamplighter, August Wood, who illuminates the gap between the affluent and the undesirables that dwell in the murky shadows.
Stripped down to her bare instincts, she retreats into a secret world, that if revealed, would shatter all that remains. Everything collides when Bess, the captivating, young woman across town, emerges, navigating the dense world of the local elite, offering a glimpse into an era when women were beginning to take the stage.

Survival, a resilient thread of music, interweaves their compelling stories, uniting them, unveiling grievous misdeeds from the past.

Author Mj Pettingill returns to discuss The Angel's Lament the sequel to her popular book Etched in Granite about life on the Caroll County Poor Farm in 1872.  In “Etched in Granite,” we came to know Abigail, Silas, Nellie, and the others. Their tales, carefully woven together, bound by their afflictions and the will to survive, do not end here. The stories hidden beneath anonymous graves go well beyond the discovery of the 298, spanning generations, oceans, and even continents. This flame may be that of a single candle, subtle light within infinite darkness, with a promise to burn brightly.

For the Hodgdon sisters — Abigail and Sarah — 1872 is a year of reckoning. Alone and determined, 17-year-old Sarah Hodgdon boards a train, trading farm life in New Hampshire for the textile mills of Fall River. Woefully disillusioned, she finds herself trapped within the confines of a brutal factory and a filthy, crowded tenement.

Her torment wildly escalates when she learns the fate of her family —her sister locked away in the County Farm, and her mother’s remains scattered amongst the charred ruins of their beloved home,

About to drown in a sea of spindles, she meets lamplighter, August Wood, who illuminates the gap between the affluent and the undesirables that dwell in the murky shadows.
Stripped down to her bare instincts, she retreats into a secret world, that if revealed, would shatter all that remains. Everything collides when Bess, the captivating, young woman across town, emerges, navigating the dense world of the local elite, offering a glimpse into an era when women were beginning to take the stage.

Digging Into Native History in New Hampshire

Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface.  

Robert Goodby is a professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge. He holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Brown University and has spent the last thirty years studying Native American archaeological sites in New England. He is a past president of the New Hampshire Archeological Society, a former Trustee of the Mount Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, and served on the New Hampshire Commission on Native American Affairs. In 2010, he directed the excavations of four 12,000 year-old Paleoindian dwelling sites at the Tenant Swamp site in Keene.

Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library.  Open to the public.  Light refreshments served.

New England Lighthouses

Everyone knows there's "something about lighthouses" that gives them broad appeal, but their vital role in our history and culture is little appreciated. Our early nation was built on maritime economy, and lighthouses were part of the system that made that possible. Due to automation, traditional lighthouse keeping is a way of life that has faded into the past. Jeremy D'Entremont tells the history of New England's historic and picturesque lighthouses primarily focusing on the colorful and dramatic stories of lighthouse keepers and their families.

Jeremy D'Entremont has written more than a dozen books and 300 articles on lighthouse history and other maritime topics. He is the official historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation and the founder of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses. D'Entremont has lectured and narrated cruises from Maine to California, and his photographs have appeared in many books and magazines. He is also editor of the website "New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide" at www.newenglandlighthouses.net. He emphasizes the rich human history of lighthouse keepers and their families in his presentations.

Sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Friends of the Meredith Library.  Open to the public.  Light refreshments served.
