Popular Day

Wednesday, February 8th Events

Movie at the Library

Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Place: Keene Public Library, Auditorium
Price: Free

No Impact Man.
Colin Beavan is a New York City writer and self-proclaimed liberal. He has big plans for his new book. He decides on a grand experiment: to live one year with as little impact on the environment as possible. The problem is, the project requires his wife Michelle, an espresso-guzzling, Prada-worshipping business writer, and their young daughter to be fully on board. The family embarks on a year of no electricity, television, cars, toilet paper, elevators, or newspapers.

To Build a Fire: Jack London Book Club

Time: 3:00 PM-5:00 PM
Place: Hancock Library, Hancock, NH (about 22 miles from Keene)
Price: Free
Ages: Middle school age

Join Harris Center Naturalists Susie Spikol Faber and Jenn Sutton, and Hancock Children’s Librarian Rennie Timm for a snowshoe adventure. We’ll snowshoe from the library into the wilds of Hancock, and, as we go, read excerpts from the classic Jack London adventure/survival tale To Build a Fire. At a secret destination, we’ll build our own small fire in the deep winter cold, and roast s’mores as we read the exciting climax of the story. Bring a headlamp or flashlight for this reading adventure, as we’ll be returning to the library in the dark. 3 to 5 pm at the Hancock Town Library. Call the library at 525-4411 to register. Cosponsored with the Hancock Town Library. Let us know if you need to borrow a pair of snowshoes−we have plenty available. No cost for the adventure or the snowshoes.

The Mable Story

Time: 7:30 PM
Place: 100 Flat St., Brattleboro, VT  (about 18 miles from Keene)
Price: $13-15
Ages: All

The Mabel Story is a multimedia, theatrical reinterpretation of the Russian Folk tale “Vasilisa the Brave”, featuring live musical storytelling and acrobatic dance theater. The show has been called a “visual feast”, weaving fantastical video art and shadow play with sets and costumes that harken back to Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal". Maria Pugnetti, playing both narrator and hero, tells Mabel's story through an all original musical score that combines freak folk with a touch of Bjork and the classic bedtime story. The dynamic dance trio Radha Newsom, Jahnavi Newsom, and Cyndal Ellis animate the stage with a contemporary fusion of modern dance, capoeira, acrobatics, and tribal style belly dance. The Mabel Story transports audiences of all ages on an other-worldly adventure.
