Building Common Ground Book Discussion

Time: 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Place: Horatio Colony House Museum, Main St., Keene, NH

About the time that Huck Finn and Jim were floating down the Mississippi in search of a home, Henry David Thoreau build a cabin on the shore of a small lake and lived there alone for two years. Walden describes the experiment and explains its motives. 

This is evening's discussion is part of the Keene Chautauqua 2012 series of programs. The main event will take place at Keene Public Library on Thursday June 28. Performers playing New England authors Sarah Orne Jewett and Henry David Thoreau will take the Heberton Hall stage to share a bit about themselves and their views “what makes a community.”
Parking is at the rear of St. Bernard's Church adjacent to the museum.

The Keene Public Library is able to host the these discussions thanks to a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council (NHHC), a private non-profit organization whose mission is “to offer essential opportunities for discovery, self-reflection, and lifelong learning by fostering civil discourse and bringing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire.” The NHHC awards grants and develops and sponsors free public programs such as book discussions, workshops, seminars, and conferences led by scholars in literature, history, languages, ethics, philosophy, comparative religion and culture, and the interpretation of the arts.
