Mentalist Preston Heller
Tuesday, May 9th, 7:00 PM
Lawrence Barn
Preston Heller will not tell you what a mentalist does.  He will show you! And in so doing, every audience member will have a unique, personal experience with the 'unseen”, including telepathy, thought implantation and clairvoyance.
Mr. Heller’s programs are given for free at every library. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned or dry goods for their local food pantry, however this is not a requirement for admission to the event.
This program is 100% family friendly and free but due to the nature of the subject matter it is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Exemplary Country Estates of New Hampshire
In the early 20th century, the NH Board of Agriculture launched a program to boost the rural economy and promote tourism through the sale of abandoned farms to summer residents. After introducing the country house movement, Cristina Ashjian focuses attention on some of the great country estates featured between 1902 and 1913. Which private estates were recognized as exemplary, and who were their owners? 
  This program is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Boys in the Boat...The Rest of the Story: Presented by Jim Pocock
 The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown is about the 1936 Olympic crew from the University of Washington that won the gold medal in Berlin against overwhelming odds. A central figure in the book is the boat builder George Pocock, arguably the most influential man in crew racing in the last hundred years. George Pocock’s great-nephew Jim Pocock will speak on 'The Boys in the Boat – the Rest of the Story” about his personal memories of his great uncle, as well as his grandfather Dick who built boats exclusively for Yale for 46 years.
