Can A Black Hole Make you Disappear?

Time: 7:00 PM-8:00 PM
Place: Keene Public Library
Price: Free
Ages: All

Black holes are among the most mysterious objects known. What are they? Where can they be found? Where is the closest one to us and are we in danger of being swallowed up? Find out as professional astronomer Matt Marulla sheds light on these questions as he discusses the darkest places in the universe.
The program is co-sponsored by the Keene Amateur Astronomy Club.

The Beloved Community in Action Talk by James Kates

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Marlboro College, Apple Tree, Marlboro, VT (about 29 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: Older kids

Civil-rights activists in the 1960s worked for a committed body of citizens in which everyone participates equally, an ideal still in search of realization. Jim Kates, who worked with the Student Nonviolent Committee in Mississippi in the mid-1960s and as a nonviolent activist and trainer afterwards, will lead a discussion about how this practice worked then, and how it resonates today. Kates co-directs the non-profit literary publishing house Zephyr Press, publishers of Letters from Mississippi: Reports from Civil Rights Volunteers & Poetry of the 1964 Freedom Summer.
