KENSINGTON — Rebecca Rule will present a virtual talk on the history of New Hampshire town meetings, “Moved and Seconded” on Wed., September 29, at 7:00 p.m.
Drawing on research from her book, “Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire, the Present, the Past, and the Future”, Rebecca Rule regales audiences with stories of the rituals, traditions, and history of town meeting, including the perennial characters, the literature, the humor, and the wisdom of this uniquely New England institution.
This event is sponsored by the Kensington Public Library and made possible through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
Rebecca Rule hosted the New Hampshire Authors Series for ten years on NHPTV and now hosts Our Hometown on NHPTV. She’s been telling stories in New England, especially NH, for more than thirty years. She hasn’t visited every town in the Granite State but has found her way to many of them — speaking at libraries, historical societies, church groups, and charitable organizations.
Her books include “N is for New Hampshire”, an ABC book with photographs by Scott Snyder; “The Iciest Diciest Scariest Sled Ride Ever!”, a picture book illustrated by Jennifer Thermes; “Headin’ for the Rhubarb, A NH Dictionary (well, kinda)”; “The Best Revenge”, which was named one of five essential NH Books by New Hampshire Magazine and “That Reminds Me of a Funny Story”, Hobblebush Press.
