Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire

May 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Drawing on research from her book, Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire, the Present, the Past, and the Future, Rebecca Rule regales audiences with stories of the rituals, traditions, and history of town meeting, including the perennial characters, the literature, the humor, and the wisdom of this uniquely New England institution. This program is made possible through a Humanities To Go grant from New Hampshire Humanities.

Rebecca Rule gathers and tells stories in New England, mostly New Hampshire. She is the author of eleven books, including N is for New Hampshire out in the fall of 2016 with Islandport Press. Her other titles include: Headin’ for the Rhubarb: a NH Dictionary (well kinda) and Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire as well as the children’s picture book, The Iciest Diciest Scariest Sled Ride Ever. For ten years she hosted “The New Hampshire Authors Series” on NHPTV. She currently hosts “Our Hometown” also on NHPTV.
