Tuesday, June 5th Events

Building Common Grounds with Familiar Fields: The Power of Community in the Work of Sarah Orne Jewett

Time: 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Place: Keene Public Library, Auditorium, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: Older

“Familiar Fields” is based on the life and work of 19th century New England author Sarah Orne Jewett. The program uses stories from Jewett’s The Country of the Pointed Firs and Dunnet Landing Stories to explore her expertly drawn Down East characters and the community that binds them in time and place. It explores issues of community as reflected in Jewett’s stories, as well as the ways in which her regional portraits speak about both the essential New England character and universal experiences of geographic isolation, cultural insulation, and how individual identity is shaped and defined by community.
