Life Coaching
The "Manual"
Tuesday, October 8
Whether we know it or not, most of us have manuals that we have “written” for other people in our lives on what they should do and how they should behave. Most often these people are not even aware that these “rule books” exist, yet we expect them to follow the rules and get upset with them when they don’t.
How big is your manual? Who is it for? And are you willing to let it go? Join life coach Diane MacKinnon, M.D. for a discussion about "The Manual" and learn new ways of relating to your loved ones.
Registration requested - please register here . Walk-ins welcome .

Spinning Gold: Shaping Your Family Research Into Compelling Stories

Attendees are encouraged to bring one memorabilia item or a significant photograph from their family to help in the program’s discussion. Halvorson will share her research process, the mistakes she’s made, and a bit about the story-writing process.

Life Downstairs: British Servant Culture in Fact, Fiction and Film
Saturday, October 19
While servant narratives have been popular for centuries, there appears to be a re-surging interest in stories of the servant class. Contemporary British and North American writers, filmmakers, and television executives have included master/servant relationships in financially successful and popular films such as "The Remains of the Day" and "Gosford Park." PBS created classics including "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Manor House," as well as the phenomenally successful "Downton Abbey." Mainstream American television has also piloted its own versions of the British servant, in shows as wide-ranging as "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and reality TV’s "Supernanny."
Join Ann McClellan as she explores the history behind the rise and fall of British servants and why Americans are so fascinated by their stories on page and screen. 

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hudson and a grant from NH Humanities.
