Rebecca Rule at PPL


PLAISTOW —The Plaistow Historical Society and the NH Humanities Council will host Rebecca Rule, who will present, “That Reminds Me of a Story: Yankee Humor and the New England Storytelling Tradition”.

Good stories never die, they evolve from teller to teller. New England has a rich and ongoing storytelling tradition from folklore to ″Bert and I″ to stories about your family, your life, or the town you live in. Humorist Rebecca Rule will prime the pump with stories she's collected at small-town gatherings, often at historical societies and libraries, over the last ten years, plus a classic or two. Our ″discussion″ will be the stories that listeners offer up, and as one story leads to another -- humorous, serious, thought-provoking, or just plain entertaining -- we practice and preserve our stories and tradition. And laugh, a lot.

This event will be on Tues., October 9 at 7:00 p.m. at the Plaistow Public Library. There is no admission fee and registration is not required. All are welcome.
