Attention: book lovers and readers of all ages! The National Book Festival will be held online September 25 through 27 by the Library of Congress. More than a hundred best-selling authors, novelists, historians, poets, and children's writers will be speaking at this year’s FREE event.
Watch Connections program manager Mary Nolin read You Hold Me Up. This book, written by Monique Gray Smith and illustrated by Danielle Daniel, encourages us to consider each other’s well-being in our everyday actions. Activities to accompany the book suitable for all age and literacy levels are available HERE.
If you missed last week’s Ideas on Tap program, you can catch up now by listening to the audio version (or you can watch the video on our YouTube channel). In this program, "Voting in America," we discussed the history of voting rights with professors from Saint Anselm College.

Black Women Rock:
Leading the Charge for Social and Political Change

New Hampshire Humanities is proud to sponsor the 2020 Black New England Conference which takes place online on September 25 & 26. The goal of this year’s Black New England Conference is to celebrate, examine, and make visible Black women’s leadership and activism in fights for political and social change. Panelists will discuss Black women’s leadership and activism in a variety of social and political arenas—the classroom, the courtroom, business and economics, technology, the environment, the arts, religion, government, and others. You can register for tickets HERE. We'll see you there!
