Get into the Halloween spirit early by reading the classic Dracula, a gothic horror novel about the Transylvanian vampire count and his many enemies, published in 1897. Although the story has been retold many times on screen, nothing beats reading Bram Stoker’s original tale.

Meet new staff member Dr. Agnes Burt who will run our Community Project Grants!

Agnes Burt was born and grew up in southern New Hampshire. She received her B.A. from The Catholic University of America, majoring in history and English literature, and completed her Ph.D. in history at Boston University. Her dissertation focused on the late-nineteenth century women’s movement and married women’s efforts to be recognized as individuals with legal rights. While researching and writing her dissertation she lived in London, Boston, and Washington, DC. She’s excited to be returning to the Granite State to join New Hampshire Humanities, and is thrilled to be able to enjoy New Hampshire’s beautiful fall weather again.
