NH Humanities Perspective Book Groups

Wednesday, June 26th at 6:30 pm

Through Perspectives Book Groups participants engage with diverse perspectives through literature to build understanding and empathy, and to support a culture of reading in the Granite State. New Hampshire Humanities provides expert facilitators and free copies of the book.

The discussion will focus on The Attack by Yasmina Khadra. The book is a fictional, timely, and haunting novel that powerfully illuminates the devastating human costs of terrorism. Dr. Amin Jaafari is an Arab-Israeli surgeon at a hospital in Tel Aviv. As an admired and respected member of his community, he has carved a space for himself and his wife, Sihem, at the crossroads of two troubled societies. Jaafari’s world is abruptly shattered when Sihem is killed in a suicide bombing.

Facilitator Mohamed Defaa earned an MA in Communication and Expression at the University Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco, and a BA in French Language and Literature from the University Ibn Tofail in Kénitra, Morocco. Defaa has served as an assistant professor of Communication and Cultural Expression at the University Hassan the Second in Casablanca, Morocco, and a college instructor in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He currently teaches French and Arabic at Merrimack High School, and is an Arabic instructor at SNHU.

Join us for the discussion. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Library. To receive supplementary materials and email reminders, sign up here.

 

Discovering New England Stone Walls

Wednesday, July 10th at 6:30pm

Discovering Stone Walls logo

Why are we so fascinated with stone walls? Kevin Gardner, author of The Granite Kiss, explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways that they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. Along the way, Kevin occupies himself building a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop, using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket.
