7:00 PMRobert Rogers of the Rangers



Description:  
On a frontier where individualism flourished, New Hampshire’s consummate woodsman was just the leader to bring his men back safely from deep in dangerous country, even in stormy, freezing weather. "The famous Major Rogers’" renown was such that he became perhaps the single-best-known American on both sides of the Atlantic. In October 1765, a private audience with young King George III led, eleven months later, to the launching of an expedition to find the long-dreamed-of Northwest passage to the Pacific – forty years before Lewis and Clark.
But who was this frontier farmer, raised in Dunbarton? Thirty years after his death in obscurity in May 1795, Rogers' exploits were mined by James Fenimore Cooper for his best-selling novels, and in the 20
th and 21st centuries, for other histories, novels, movies, and television.
George Morrison takes us along on a journey from colonial North America to the 21
st century.

But Mount Washington—home of the world's worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it's the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries-old observatory, Mount Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan captured it all in his new book.

10:30 AMFriends Book Discussion: The Ninth Hour



Description:  
The Ninth Hour
by
Alice McDermott

 Set in Brooklyn, New York in the early part of the twentieth century, McDermott tells a story of seemingly quiet souls, woman whose lives are regulated by religion and social roles. The Little Sisters of the Sick Poor, particularly Sisters Lucy and Jeanne, live humble lives yet somehow manage to bend the rules of the Church hierarchy in the service of poor and abandoned women and children. This is a story of servitude mixed with covert feminism, of women of faith who are guided by their experiences in the community and their compassion for ordinary human vulnerability.
We are delighted to again welcome Dr. Suzanne Brown of Dartmouth College as she guides us in appreciating and understanding this unique novel.

7:00 PMTreasure from the Isles of Shoals: How New Archaeology is Changing Old History



Description:  
There is treasure here but not the pirate kind. Scientific “digs” on Smuttynose Island are changing New England history. Archaeologist Nathan Hamilton has unearthed 300,000 artifacts to date on this largely uninhabited rock at the Isles of Shoals. Evidence proves prehistoric Native Americans hunted New Hampshire’s only offshore islands 6,000 years ago. Hundreds of European fishermen split, salted, and dried valuable Atlantic cod here from the 1620s. “King Haley” ruled a survivalist kingdom here before Thomas Laighton struck tourist gold when his family took over the region’s first hotel on Smuttynose. Laighton’s daughter Celia Thaxter spun poetic tales of ghosts and pirates. J. Dennis Robinson, a longtime Smuttynose steward, explores the truth behind the romantic legends of Gosport Harbor in this colorful show-and-tell presentation.

7:00 PMDeath in the White Mountains



Description:  
Death in the White Mountains:
Hiker Fatalities and How to Avoid Being One

by Julie Boardman

Since 1849, over 200 hikers, climbers and backcountry skiers have died in the White Mountains.
Although many fatalities took place on Mount Washington, in recent years more deaths have occurred elsewhere. Most of the deaths didn’t have to happen. They were the result of an oversight or a bad decision. Julie Boardman wrote Death in the White Mountains in the belief that by studying past fatalities and identifying the mistakes that caused them we can learn how to be safe in the mountains. Julie tells the stories of several victims, describing the fatal errors they made, and also shares surprising facts from her research.

7:00 PMA F.O.O.L. in New Hampshire



Description:  
Brendan Smith 
Weirs Times columnist

Brendan was born and raised on Long Island, New York, a bagel throw from New York City.
In 1985, Brendan unexpectedly found himself moving to Central New Hampshire. Over the next ten years, he worked hard at adjusting to life there. From learning to rake his roof, to buying firewood for the first time, to trying to fit into the social setting of an afternoon at the dump, he found that these, and many more adjustments, would not be very easy for this Flatlander.
Since 1995, Brendan has been recounting these humorous adventures, as well as other tales, weekly on the pages of The Weirs Times in his F.O.O.L (Flatlander’s Observations on Life) In New Hampshire” column.
Along with a few Flatlander Tales, Brendan will also offer some amusing insight into his recent open-heart surgery and explain why “I only did it for the socks.”

7:00 PMFrom Guns to Gramophones



Description:  
Moultonborough Historial Scoiety meeting 

From Guns to Gramophones:
Civil War and the Technology that Shaped America

 
Carrie Brown explores the technological triumph that helped save the Union and then transformed the nation. During the Civil War, northern industry produced a million and a half rifles, along with tens of thousands of pistols and carbines. How did the North produce all of those weapons? The answer lies in new machinery and methods for producing guns with interchangeable parts. Once the system of mass production had been tested and perfected, what happened after the war? In the period from 1870 to 1910 new factory technology and new print media fueled the development of mass consumerism. While this program tells a broad, national story, it focuses on the critical and somewhat surprising role of Vermont and New Hampshire in producing industrial technology that won the war and changed American life.

 
Carrie Brown holds a PhD in American Literature and Folklore from the University of Virginia. She is an independent scholar who also works as a freelance history curator for museums in New England. She has curated two exhibitions on the Civil War for the American Precision Museum, as well as exhibitions on the history of aviation, the early years of the automobile, and the bicycle. The author of two books and many articles and exhibit catalogs, Brown delights in finding connections between changing technology and the evolution of popular culture.

Robert Rogers of the Rangers
On a frontier where individualism flourished, New Hampshire’s consummate woodsman was just the leader to bring his men back safely from deep in dangerous country, even in stormy, freezing weather. "The famous Major Rogers’" renown was such that he became perhaps the single-best-known American on both sides of the Atlantic. In October 1765, a private audience with young King George III led, eleven months later, to the launching of an expedition to find the long-dreamed-of Northwest passage to the Pacific – forty years before Lewis and Clark.
But who was this frontier farmer, raised in Dunbarton? Thirty years after his death in obscurity in May 1795, Rogers' exploits were mined by James Fenimore Cooper for his best-selling novels, and in the 20
th and 21st centuries, for other histories, novels, movies, and television.
George Morrison takes us along on a journey from colonial North America to the 21
st century.

Warming Up to NH’s Cold-blooded Natives

Think reptiles and amphibians are all scales and slime? Think again! New Hampshire is home to 40 species of reptiles and amphibians. These salamanders, turtles, snakes, frogs, and toads range from among the most common animals in the state to some of the rarest, and they can be found almost anywhere – from lakes, rivers, streams, and marshes to vernal pools and a variety of forest types. Learn more about where these species are found, what they need to survive, and how you can help ensure that these critters are found in New Hampshire for generations to come.

Mount Washington with Dan Szczesny
The White Mountain:
365 Days of Mischief and Adventure on Mount Washington


     From the vaulted heights of New England's highest peak, Travel Writer and Journalist Dan Szczesny spent a year exploring the very heart of the White Mountains. But Mount Washington—home of the world's worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it's the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries-old observatory, Mount Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan captured it all in his new book.

Friends Book Discussion: The Ninth Hour
The Ninth Hour
by
Alice McDermott

 Set in Brooklyn, New York in the early part of the twentieth century, McDermott tells a story of seemingly quiet souls, woman whose lives are regulated by religion and social roles. The Little Sisters of the Sick Poor, particularly Sisters Lucy and Jeanne, live humble lives yet somehow manage to bend the rules of the Church hierarchy in the service of poor and abandoned women and children. This is a story of servitude mixed with covert feminism, of women of faith who are guided by their experiences in the community and their compassion for ordinary human vulnerability.
We are delighted to again welcome Dr. Suzanne Brown of Dartmouth College as she guides us in appreciating and understanding this unique novel.

A veteran of seven Himalayan expeditions, Ed is one of America’s best-known rock climbers and Himalayan mountaineers. He has achieved several world-famous climbs, most notably his first ascent of a new route up Mt. Everest’s remote, highly-dangerous Kangshung East Face in Tibet as part of an international 4-man team in 1988. Ed’s expedition climbed Everest without oxygen bottles, radios, or even any Sherpa assistance, an ascent hailed as among the most audacious mountaineering feats of all time.

Treasure from the Isles of Shoals: How New Archaeology is Changing Old History
There is treasure here but not the pirate kind. Scientific “digs” on Smuttynose Island are changing New England history. Archaeologist Nathan Hamilton has unearthed 300,000 artifacts to date on this largely uninhabited rock at the Isles of Shoals. Evidence proves prehistoric Native Americans hunted New Hampshire’s only offshore islands 6,000 years ago. Hundreds of European fishermen split, salted, and dried valuable Atlantic cod here from the 1620s. “King Haley” ruled a survivalist kingdom here before Thomas Laighton struck tourist gold when his family took over the region’s first hotel on Smuttynose. Laighton’s daughter Celia Thaxter spun poetic tales of ghosts and pirates. J. Dennis Robinson, a longtime Smuttynose steward, explores the truth behind the romantic legends of Gosport Harbor in this colorful show-and-tell presentation.

Death in the White Mountains
Death in the White Mountains:
Hiker Fatalities and How to Avoid Being One

by Julie Boardman

Since 1849, over 200 hikers, climbers and backcountry skiers have died in the White Mountains.
Although many fatalities took place on Mount Washington, in recent years more deaths have occurred elsewhere. Most of the deaths didn’t have to happen. They were the result of an oversight or a bad decision. Julie Boardman wrote Death in the White Mountains in the belief that by studying past fatalities and identifying the mistakes that caused them we can learn how to be safe in the mountains. Julie tells the stories of several victims, describing the fatal errors they made, and also shares surprising facts from her research.

A F.O.O.L. in New Hampshire
Brendan Smith 
Weirs Times columnist

Brendan was born and raised on Long Island, New York, a bagel throw from New York City.
In 1985, Brendan unexpectedly found himself moving to Central New Hampshire. Over the next ten years, he worked hard at adjusting to life there. From learning to rake his roof, to buying firewood for the first time, to trying to fit into the social setting of an afternoon at the dump, he found that these, and many more adjustments, would not be very easy for this Flatlander.
Since 1995, Brendan has been recounting these humorous adventures, as well as other tales, weekly on the pages of The Weirs Times in his F.O.O.L (Flatlander’s Observations on Life) In New Hampshire” column.
Along with a few Flatlander Tales, Brendan will also offer some amusing insight into his recent open-heart surgery and explain why “I only did it for the socks.”

From Guns to Gramophones
Moultonborough Historial Scoiety meeting 

From Guns to Gramophones:
Civil War and the Technology that Shaped America

 
Carrie Brown explores the technological triumph that helped save the Union and then transformed the nation. During the Civil War, northern industry produced a million and a half rifles, along with tens of thousands of pistols and carbines. How did the North produce all of those weapons? The answer lies in new machinery and methods for producing guns with interchangeable parts. Once the system of mass production had been tested and perfected, what happened after the war? In the period from 1870 to 1910 new factory technology and new print media fueled the development of mass consumerism. While this program tells a broad, national story, it focuses on the critical and somewhat surprising role of Vermont and New Hampshire in producing industrial technology that won the war and changed American life.

 
Carrie Brown holds a PhD in American Literature and Folklore from the University of Virginia. She is an independent scholar who also works as a freelance history curator for museums in New England. She has curated two exhibitions on the Civil War for the American Precision Museum, as well as exhibitions on the history of aviation, the early years of the automobile, and the bicycle. The author of two books and many articles and exhibit catalogs, Brown delights in finding connections between changing technology and the evolution of popular culture.

Rationing began in 1942 with tires and by 1943 ration coupons were required to purchase coffee, sugar, meat, cheese, butter, lard, margarine, canned foods, dried fruits, jam, gasoline, bicycles, fuel oil, clothing, silk or nylon stockings, and shoes.
