We had a great turnout, about 130 people, for this year’s Big Event, on October 30 at the Lutheran Church of the Nativity in North Conway. Author Amy Belding Brown talked about the way facts and truth interact in writing historical fiction, answered all kinds of questions with candidness, humor and grace, signed books for her readers, and was generally delighted to be here, and delightful to learn from.
Please join us on November 12 at 7 pm at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth for one more 1 Book 1 Valley event, this one will delve into the history of Native Americans in New England before, during, and after the period covered in Amy Belding Brown’s novel. David Stewart-Smith will present the NH Humanities Council program “Native American History of New Hampshire: Alliance and Survival, circa 1400-1700.” Stewart-Smith will discuss the time that began with English and French exploration, the Pennacook Alliance and the leader Passaconaway, up to the time of King Philip’s War. This event is free and open to the public.
