7:00 PMEverest: The Hard Way with Ed Webster



Description:  
Everest: The Hard Way
"A Riveting Lecture and Breathtaking 
Slide Show"

  by 
Ed Webster 
(climber, mountaineer, author,
photographer, adventurer)

 
            In 1988, American mountaineer Ed Webster achieved and survived the Impossible. With three partners, he ascended a new, never-before-attempted route up Mt. Everest’s most dangerous isolated side in Tibet—and without the usual assistance of oxygen bottles, radios, and Sherpa climbers to carry the necessary food and equipment.  Back in America, friends wondered how many of Ed’s expedition would return.   
            That Ed and his companions succeeded in completing this outstanding climb, and that Ed's partner Stephen Venables became the first British mountaineer to climb Everest without bottled oxygen is a testimony to human endurance and remarkable teamwork.  Ed reached the mountain’s South Summit—at 28,700 feet, just 300 feet shy of the main summit.  Then, somehow, Ed led his partners down a storm-bound, avalanche-plagued, four-day descent off the mountain, without any food, badly frostbitten, and very near death.  
Come take a journey to Nepal and Tibet, then climb Mt. Everest “The Hard Way!”

10:30 AMFriends of the Library Book Discussion



Description:  
Learning to Drive
by 
Mary Hays
In Learning to Drive, author Mary Hays portrays two sisters who are strongly influenced by their religious beliefs. In 1952, Charlotte McGuffey both re-embraces Christian Science and decides to separate from her husband with whom she has felt increasingly estranged.  Just days after Charlotte announces her desire for a separation, her husband, Melvin, dies in a car accident. Trying to make sense of both Melvin’s death and her own life, Charlotte travels with her children to her husband’s hometown where her faith, identity, and sense of obligation are challenged. This is a story of transformational relationships and the power of the human mind and spirit.
 
We are thrilled to have author Mary Hays return to Moultonborough to discuss her own work. You may recall that Mary’s 2016 analysis of The Great Gatsby was both well attended and well received.

7:00 PMLife and Work at the Mount Washington Observatory



Description:  
        Presented by
       Will Broussard

 An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years. While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed outpost on this remote alpine peak since 1932.

Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the  "Home of the World's Worst Weather."

7:00 PM12,000 Years Ago in the Granite State



Description:  
The native Abenaki people played a central role in the history of the Monadnock region, defending it against English settlement and forcing the abandonment of Keene and other Monadnock area towns during the French and Indian Wars. Despite this, little is known about the Abenaki, and conventional histories often depict the first Europeans entering an untamed, uninhabited wilderness, rather than the homeland of people who had been there for hundreds of generations. Robert Goodby discusses how the real depth of native history was revealed when an archaeological study prior to construction of the new Keene Middle School discovered traces of four structures dating to the end of the Ice Age. Undisturbed for 12,000 years, the site revealed information about the economy, gender roles, and household organization of the Granite State's very first inhabitants, as well as evidence of social networks that extended for hundreds of miles across northern New England.

Description:  

Mill Girls 
with scholar
Peg Fargo

Mill girls played a key role in the success of the Industrial Revolution. They came from all over New England during the 1800s and early 1900s to the cities with textile mills. There they were hired and trained to weave the strands that moved a society from farm and home-produced goods, as well as imported goods, to factory goods that were produced in America. Ranging in age from 10 to middle age, but mostly in their early 20, the "girls" ended representing about 75 percent of the textile mill workforce. They lived a harsh and demanding life, but moved out of the shadows of being a possession and stood proud in a new endeavor.

Richard Kruppa, known musically as “Ramblin’ Richard,” performs songs folks love to hear and fondly remember.  Along with singing these memorable “family friendly” songs, he tells fascinating stories. He accompanies himself on acoustic instruments including guitar, 5-string banjo, and baritone ukulele.  His stories relate to the songs- how they came to be, what was happening in the world when they were popular.

Galileo
Galileo Galilei, the Starry Messenger
The Starry Messenger, presented by Michael Francis, is a dramatic fun-filled adaptation of Galileo's short treatise "Siderius Nuncius." Galileo (dressed in 17th-century costume) arrives to present a public lecture on his most recent discoveries made using his newly devised spyglass. As he describes those discoveries, Galileo's new method of observation and measurement of nature become apparent. Throughout the presentation audience members are actively involved in experiments and demonstrations. After the lecture, Galileo answers questions about his experiments, his life, and his times.

Everest: The Hard Way with Ed Webster
Everest: The Hard Way
"A Riveting Lecture and Breathtaking 
Slide Show"

  by 
Ed Webster 
(climber, mountaineer, author,
photographer, adventurer)

 
            In 1988, American mountaineer Ed Webster achieved and survived the Impossible. With three partners, he ascended a new, never-before-attempted route up Mt. Everest’s most dangerous isolated side in Tibet—and without the usual assistance of oxygen bottles, radios, and Sherpa climbers to carry the necessary food and equipment.  Back in America, friends wondered how many of Ed’s expedition would return.   
            That Ed and his companions succeeded in completing this outstanding climb, and that Ed's partner Stephen Venables became the first British mountaineer to climb Everest without bottled oxygen is a testimony to human endurance and remarkable teamwork.  Ed reached the mountain’s South Summit—at 28,700 feet, just 300 feet shy of the main summit.  Then, somehow, Ed led his partners down a storm-bound, avalanche-plagued, four-day descent off the mountain, without any food, badly frostbitten, and very near death.  
Come take a journey to Nepal and Tibet, then climb Mt. Everest “The Hard Way!”

Learning to Drive
by 
Mary Hays
In Learning to Drive, author Mary Hays portrays two sisters who are strongly influenced by their religious beliefs. In 1952, Charlotte McGuffey both re-embraces Christian Science and decides to separate from her husband with whom she has felt increasingly estranged.  Just days after Charlotte announces her desire for a separation, her husband, Melvin, dies in a car accident. Trying to make sense of both Melvin’s death and her own life, Charlotte travels with her children to her husband’s hometown where her faith, identity, and sense of obligation are challenged. This is a story of transformational relationships and the power of the human mind and spirit.
 
We are thrilled to have author Mary Hays return to Moultonborough to discuss her own work. You may recall that Mary’s 2016 analysis of The Great Gatsby was both well attended and well received.

Life and Work at the Mount Washington Observatory
        Presented by
       Will Broussard

 An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years. While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed outpost on this remote alpine peak since 1932.

Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the  "Home of the World's Worst Weather."

12,000 Years Ago in the Granite State
The native Abenaki people played a central role in the history of the Monadnock region, defending it against English settlement and forcing the abandonment of Keene and other Monadnock area towns during the French and Indian Wars. Despite this, little is known about the Abenaki, and conventional histories often depict the first Europeans entering an untamed, uninhabited wilderness, rather than the homeland of people who had been there for hundreds of generations. Robert Goodby discusses how the real depth of native history was revealed when an archaeological study prior to construction of the new Keene Middle School discovered traces of four structures dating to the end of the Ice Age. Undisturbed for 12,000 years, the site revealed information about the economy, gender roles, and household organization of the Granite State's very first inhabitants, as well as evidence of social networks that extended for hundreds of miles across northern New England.

So, brush off the mosquitoes, boil up some dehydrated noodles and sit back and enjoy discovering an Alaska you’d never known existed.
The talk will include glaciers, salmon, hiking, Denali and of course grizzlies! Slide show and signing.

Mill Girls

Mill Girls 
with scholar
Peg Fargo

Mill girls played a key role in the success of the Industrial Revolution. They came from all over New England during the 1800s and early 1900s to the cities with textile mills. There they were hired and trained to weave the strands that moved a society from farm and home-produced goods, as well as imported goods, to factory goods that were produced in America. Ranging in age from 10 to middle age, but mostly in their early 20, the "girls" ended representing about 75 percent of the textile mill workforce. They lived a harsh and demanding life, but moved out of the shadows of being a possession and stood proud in a new endeavor.
