You’ve probably had a severe lack of discourse about heavy topics since self-isolation became the cool new norm. Well, don't worry, we can help out. The Gilford Public Library and New Hampshire Humanities is hosting a virtual event: the Granite Gallows today! Make reminders, set your alarms, do whatever you need to do to remember, TODAY, Tuesday, February 23rd at 5:00PM. 

New Hampshire is one of the last northeastern states with capital punishment still on the books and has its first person on death row since 1939, so the controversial topic warrants some investigation and discussion. Chris Benedetto will examine the history of the death penalty in New Hampshire and the major legal and social issues which challenged our predecessors, revealing that many of these issues still haunt us today. 

If discussing life and death issues seems too much for you, we also have a light and sweet competition on Wednesday, find out more here.

Have a great week!
