An Evening with Romance Authors Ali Hazelwood, Nikki Payne, Denise Williams

The Manchester City Library, in partnership with the Tewksbury Public Library present an Evening with Romance Authors Ali Hazelwood, Nikki Payne & Denise Williams on Monday February 26, 2024 at 7:00pm via Zoom.

Authors Ali Hazelwood, Nikki Payne, and Denise Williams will discuss their latest /romance novels in this unforgettable panel discussion followed by audience Q&A.

Ali Hazelwood is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically and The Love Hypothesis, as well as a writer of peer-reviewed articles about brain science, in which no one makes out and the ever after is not always happy. Originally from Italy, she lived in Germany and Japan before moving to the US to pursue a PhD in neuroscience. When Ali is not at work, she can be found running, eating cake pops, or watching sci-fi movies with her three feline overlords (and her slightly-less-feline husband). Her latest is Bride, a paranormal romance published on February 6.

By day, Nikki Payne is a curious tech anthropologist asking the right questions to deliver better digital services. By night, she dreams of ways to subvert canon literature. Nikki is a member of Smut U, a premium feminist writing collective, and a cat lady with no cats. Her latest is Sex, Lies and Sensibility, a contemporary diverse retelling of Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility published on February 13.

Denise Williams wrote her first book in the 2nd grade. I Hate You and its sequel, I Still Hate You, featured a tough, funny heroine, a quirky hero, witty banter, and a dragon. Minus the dragons, these are still the books she likes to write. After penning those early works, she finished second grade and eventually earned a PhD. Denise lives in Iowa and can usually be found reading, writing, or thinking about love stories. Her books have been listed as an Indie Next pick, Library Reads pick, and received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. Her latest is Technically Yours, the story of a second chance romance set in a STEM-industry workplace, published in December.

RECORDING NOTE: This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 48 hours of the program.

For questions, call Emily at 603-624-6550 x7620 or email emierswa@manchesternh.gov

Spring Concert: New England Irish Harp Orchestra

The Manchester City Library is excited to host the New England Irish Harp Orchestra on Thursday March 7, 2024. The program will be held in the Auditorium at the Manchester City Library beginning at 6:30pm. Come join us for an exciting concert of Traditional Irish tunes!

The New England Irish Harp Orchestra (NEIHO) performs Traditional Irish dance tunes, slow airs, and songs.  Members span a wide age range and come from New Hampshire and Massachusetts.  The Orchestra has been performing for nineteen years throughout New England and Ireland. The Director, Regina Delaney, is a NH State Council on the Arts artist on the Traditional Arts and Arts in Health Care Roster. 

NEIHO is first and foremost a musical community, embracing the unique joy of music that comes from playing together. Their members ranging in from their 20s to their 80s, all share a common hope: to bring to listeners the same joy they feel through our music. NEIHO has been featured at the ICONS festival, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum, the Balsams Wilderness luxury resort, and on New Hampshire Public Radio. Whether through their live performances or recordings, The New England Irish Harp Orchestra’s hope is to bring a little Erin magic into your lives.

NH Wraparound Monthly Coaching

The IOD at UNH is one of a network of University Centers for Excellence in Disability (UCEDs) across the US. We are also a 501(c)(3) non-profit. My team, the IOD Children’s Behavioral Health Team, is focused on building and strengthening systems that support the mental health and wellness of children, youth, and families. Most of the work that we do is workforce development (training) and organizational development (consultation), and our customers are orgs like public schools, social services agencies, and publicly-funded mental healthcare providers.

 

NH Wraparound is a Medicaid-billable intensive mental health service for children and families that is provided by two state-designated Care Management Entities (CMEs), with oversight from NH DHHS. NH DHHS contracts with UNH IOD to provide training and monthly professional coaching to all NH Wraparound Coordinators. There are no fees for participants directly because it’s all covered by the contract with the state. This recurring meeting is monthly professional coaching for NH Wraparound providers who serve the central part of the state, including the greater Manchester area.

Remembering Together

Discussion Topic: If you could share a meal with anyone inthe world (past or present), who would it be and why?

Our lives are made up of stories.  The Remembering Together program offers seniors a unique opportunity to share with one another some of their memorable life stories. These stories are often a source of encouragement, mutual appreciation, perspective, and a sense of connection.  Of course, there are also times when a story gives everyone a good laugh.    

Please join The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester and the Manchester City Library for a conversational group at the Senior Center on Mondays at 10:30am, March 4 & 18, April 15 & 29, and May 6 & 13. Virtual attendance is also available!

For questions, call Susan Harmon at 603-624-6550 x7620 or email sharmon@manchesternh.gov

Signup for this program is encouraged! We will send you a reminder email before the meeting as well as a zoom link if you wish to attend virtually.

NH Wraparound Monthly Coaching

The IOD at UNH is one of a network of University Centers for Excellence in Disability (UCEDs) across the US. We are also a 501(c)(3) non-profit. My team, the IOD Children’s Behavioral Health Team, is focused on building and strengthening systems that support the mental health and wellness of children, youth, and families. Most of the work that we do is workforce development (training) and organizational development (consultation), and our customers are orgs like public schools, social services agencies, and publicly-funded mental healthcare providers.

 

NH Wraparound is a Medicaid-billable intensive mental health service for children and families that is provided by two state-designated Care Management Entities (CMEs), with oversight from NH DHHS. NH DHHS contracts with UNH IOD to provide training and monthly professional coaching to all NH Wraparound Coordinators. There are no fees for participants directly because it’s all covered by the contract with the state. This recurring meeting is monthly professional coaching for NH Wraparound providers who serve the central part of the state, including the greater Manchester area.

Remembering Together

Discussion Topic: What personal event(s) have most shaped your life?

Our lives are made up of stories.  The Remembering Together program offers seniors a unique opportunity to share with one another some of their memorable life stories. These stories are often a source of encouragement, mutual appreciation, perspective, and a sense of connection.  Of course, there are also times when a story gives everyone a good laugh.    

Please join The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester and the Manchester City Library for a conversational group at the Senior Center on Mondays at 10:30am, March 4 & 18, April 15 & 29, and May 6 & 13. Virtual attendance is also available!

For questions, call Susan Harmon at 603-624-6550 x7620 or email sharmon@manchesternh.gov

Signup for this program is encouraged! We will send you a reminder email before the meeting as well as a zoom link if you wish to attend virtually.
