Popular Day

Friday, January 27th Events

Movie at the Library

Time: 3:00 PM-5:00 PM
Place: Keene Public Library.
Price: Free
Ages: All/Slightly scary

The Goonies.
Come learn about different styles of film! In today's film, two kids find a treasure map just as they're about to lose their house. They and their friends go on a search for the treasure, but not without trouble from a few ne'er-do-wells.

Little House Book Club

Time: 10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Place: 1163 Brookline Rd., Mason, NH (about 34 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: All

The monthly meeting will be a discussion of winter scenes throughout any of the books in the Little House series. We will read Winter on the Farm (one of the My First Little House books), and if any children want to read an excerpt or share a project they have done relating to the books that would be wonderful.
There will be using an antique coffee grinder to try grinding wheat as Laura and her family did in The Long Winter. For anyone that is gluten sensitive we will have an alternate activity.

The Two Weeks by Larry Duberstein

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Hancock Library, Hancock, NH (about 22 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: Older crowd

We are fortunate to host novelist Larry Duberstein who will read from his latest book, The Two Weeks. “A novel of love and lust, memory and desire. Duberstein’s narrative technique allows him to approach The Two Weeks indirectly, 30 years after the event. This chronological dislocation allows the characters to match the reality of their lived experience against the distortion of memory. Duberstein writes vividly and explores the space between life as we live it and as we wish we could.” –Kirkus Reviews And the New York Journal of Books has this to say: “A sensitive...story that is assured in what it wants to say. The Two Weeks is written by a veteran author who is not trying to dazzle with literary showmanship but with intimate storytelling.” Mr. Duberstein, a native of Brooklyn, New York, was an undergraduate at Wesleyan University and a graduate student at Harvard University. He now resides mostly in Hancock, sometimes in Cambridge. This event is free and open to all.
