EPPING — The Harvey-Mitchell Memorial Library will host “Baked Beans and Fried Clams: How Food Defines a Region” on Thurs., May 2, at 7:00 p.m. Yankee Magazine’s Edie Clark will examine how contemporary life has distanced us from distinctive New England foods, and how these classics have defined our region for generations. Funded by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council, this program promises to be full of New England flavor!
Monday Munch and Movie returns on April 29 featuring “Lilies of the Field”, a 1963 film directed by Ralph Nelson about a German Mother Superior who convinces an ex-GI to build her a chapel in the Arizona desert. Wonderful performances by Sidney Poitier (Academy Award) and Lilia Skala. The movie begins at 12:30 p.m. Bring a lunch!
