Each year the Board of Directors and staff of New Hampshire Humanities have a special tradition of telling us about a book they’ve read recently and would recommend. We’re sharing this with our readers in time for holiday gift giving and/or for your 2020 reading list.

Several years ago, our former Board member, capital campaign committee member, and long-time supporter, Kate Hanna, shared her “humanities story” with the Board. We came across the article recently and asked her permission to share it publicly. Perhaps her story will inspire you to share your humanities story with us!

At this year’s Annual Dinner, New Hampshire Humanities presented the Lifetime Achievement in the Humanities Award to Steve Taylor and the Creative Achievement in the Humanities Award to Terry Farish.

This fall, New Hampshire Humanities launched a new podcast series called Past Lives that explores the more unusual chapters of New Hampshire’s history, from witchcraft to UFOs, along with compelling stories about the lives of Granite Staters.
