'Lively Boys' at HPL

HAMPSTEAD - Please plan to join the Friends of the Hampstead Public Library (HPL) and J. Dennis Robinson on Tues., April 9, at 7:00 p.m., when he will introduce you to the “bad boy” genre of American literature. Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are the best know examples of this group of stories, but there’s more to the genre than those two.

J. Dennis Robinson is an author as well as a speaker. He has published biographies of Jesse James and Lord Baltimore for young readers and histories of Strawbery Banke Museum and Wentworth by the Sea Hotel that have received national honors. He has also written two books on privateering and on the War of 1812. In addition, he has published over 1,000 articles on NH history and culture and he edits SeacoastNH.com, a web site about NH history and culture. His presentation at the library last year, “Who Won the War of 1812?”, demonstrated his delightful ability to make history both accessible and entertaining. “Lively Boys! Lively Boys!” will follow that pattern.

As with all Friends of the Library programs at the library, “Lively Boys!” is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available. Members of the Friends are asked to stay for the regular meeting following the presentation.

RAFFLE BASKET - The raffle basket that is currently on display at the library’s front desk has been donated by the Third Thursday Book Group and is designed to increase your reading pleasure. It holds two gift cards for Barnes and Noble, chocolates, cocoa, wine, books and a book on CD, a blank book with pens to use to write in it, a desk lamp and a plush throw to keep you warm as you sit on the couch reading. The winner of the basket will be drawn just before the start of the April 9th program at the library. Tickets are now available at the library’s front desk at $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. All proceeds from the tickets are used by the Friends to support the library.
