Rediscovering Mount Washington's Hidden Culture
 
Over the course of one calendar year, journalist Dan Szczesny explored the history and mystique of New England's tallest mountain. In The White Mountain, Szczesny turns a veteran journalist's eye toward exploring Mount Washington's place in the collective consciousness of the country and how this rugged landscape has reflected back a timeless history of our obsession and passion for exploration and discovery.
Dan Szczesny is a long-time author and journalist living in New Hampshire. His books include travelogues on Nepal, Alaska, and the White Mountains. He is a Hemingway Foundation finalist for short fiction and has also written a collection of short stories and of poetry. He's traveled widely throughout the country speaking about adventure travel and the importance of getting kids into the outdoors.

Manchester's Masters: The Artist's Perspective

In the Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery in the Millyard Museum
Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. - Included with museum admission.
 
Manchester is known not only for its rich industrial history, but also for the amazing men and women that have resided in these city limits. Actors, inventors, athletes and business moguls have all become part of the tapestry that is Manchester.  Lesser known are Manchester's artists: talented, creative individuals with a story to tell. Immortalized by the masterpieces they left behind, each artist has told their story with watercolor, pencil or paint.

The Manchester Historic Association is proud to present, "Manchester's Masters: The Artist's Perspective", featuring the lives and works of Henry W. Herrick, Edward L. Custer, Lisa Anne Fletcher, Omer T. Lassonde and George C. Soule: artists who called Manchester home.
