Memorial Library News
Rebecca Rule will present her program “That
Reminds Me of a Story” on June 17th at 7:00pm at the Barnstead Town
Hall. Rebecca has collected stories about 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). In this program she’ll tell some of her favorites
(especially the funny ones) and invite audience members to tell some of
their own. This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by
the Oscar Foss Memorial Library and the Barnstead Historical Society,
with funding made possible by the NH Humanities Council.
