“Sometimes ‘tell me more’ are the most generous words you can tell somebody.” 
- Terry Farish

 

You could say Terry Farish is a story whisperer.

For Farish, a writer, poet, and author, life is about words and storytelling.  But perhaps one of her greatest gifts is the ability to gently coax and nurture words and images from those who don’t know how to tell their story– or believe that their story even matters.

We’re excited to announce these brand new programs in our Humanities to Go speakers bureau! The programs discuss important themes in the history of New Hampshire and the United States: race, immigration, voting rights, and religious pluralism. Hear the stories of the New Hampshire primary, Mary Baker Eddy, the Irish diaspora, and school desegregation.

 Ideas on Tap, our series of pint-sized conversations about big ideas, is back for a second season! Join us for drinks, appetizers, and a lively community conversation in a casual pub setting. All events will be held 5:30-7:30pm. Tickets are $15 per person and include appetizers and one beverage (beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic beverage). 

Writing united us. But could we actually pull off a reading? Yes, with help from some poets before us.
