“Old and young, we dream of graves and monuments.” In 1835, Nathaniel Hawthorne published his classic short story “The Ambitious Guest” set in the White Mountains. Full of heavy-handed foreshadowing and romantic turns of phrase, it was based on the true story of the Willey disaster in Crawford Notch.
Connections program manager Mary Nolin reads Miss Rumphius , a story written by Barbara Cooney about a woman who plants flowers to make the world a more beautiful place. Mary designed activities to accompany the book suitable for all age and literacy levels, which are available HERE .

Two thoughtful supporters of New Hampshire Humanities, Bruce and Kathy Briggs, recently shared this video with me and I was moved by its message. It reminded me that we are all connected to each other, despite the distance between us. And it’s a moment of hope in a time like this that helps us all stay positive. Please enjoy. I hope it touches you too and makes you smile.
Thank you!

In times of crisis, the humanities unite and ground us, and though our work has temporarily shifted, our mission has not. We need your support to continue serving Granite Staters and supporting the state's many cultural institutions.
We thank you for your gift of any amount.
