Connecting people with ideas (no matter what)
Human Ties
Connecting across physical distance
Special program note:

Please join us this Friday, December 4 at 5 pm for our next Humanities to Go Online presentation. Geoffrey Kirsch (Harvard) presents “Forced Into Politics: Daniel Webster, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and the Fugitive Slave Crisis.” He will discuss the career and legacy of New Hampshire politician Daniel Webster and compare the polarization of the 1850s to our current political climate. Join us for this free online program.
New Hampshire Humanities Executive Director Anthony Poore recently wrote a piece for New Hampshire Magazine: “Black Lives: Meet New Hampshire’s Past, Present, and Future Agents of Change.” The essay explores the stories and experiences of three generations of Black Granite Staters.
Watch Connections Program Manager Mary Nolin read Fry Bread. This book, written by Kevin Noble Maillard and illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal, tells the story of a modern Native American family. Activities to accompany the book suitable for all age and literacy levels are available on our website.
Listen to NH Public Radio’s moving audio tribute to Marty, the Mount Washington Observatory cat, on the Outside/In podcast. This handsome Maine Coon “cat of the clouds” worked at the weather station for twelve years and enjoyed hiking and mousing.
