Jud Hale, Yankee Magazine and Old Farmer's Almanac editor and writer, with The Education of a Yankee

7:00 PM - Concord

Join Gibson's for an evening with Yankee Magazine and Old Farmer's Almanac editor and writer Jud Hale! Originally published in 1987, The Education of a Yankee is Judson Hale’s engaging memoir about the grand, eccentric, and occasionally tragic history of his very unconventional family. Born into Boston’s very proper Brahmin world, Hale was the son of a wealthy father who loved sailing and horseback riding, and a beautiful and talented mother who sang professionally. But readers expecting a conventional account of New England privilege will be delightfully surprised. The fate of Hale’s older brother, Drake, led his parents to embark on a dramatic, extravagant, and visionary undertaking that changed the family’s history and brought a remarkable adventure to the small town of Vanceboro, Maine. In this new edition, Hale updates his memoir to include recent revelations, including Drake’s late-in-life diagnosis of autism.

Ryan Montbleau, who has been recording and touring as both a solo act and bandleader for much of the last 15 years, moves people. A gifted songwriter, he has developed a very special history and bond to a deeply-rooted fanbase that now stretches all over the United States and beyond. Montbleau's transcendent songcraft and powerful, uplifting voice can tackle intense topics just as easily as expressing life's simple, everyday joys. He continues to speak to a generation of fans who have been along for his rise. Like an intense, slow-burning wildfire, Montbleau has toured relentlessly and connected with audiences night after night, year after year. This gifted singer and his band have built their catalog the old-fashioned way, by introducing new songs to their live set, then bending and shaping them over dozens of performances before committing a definitive version to the hard drive. "Songwriting sits at the center of my life, basically. I always look at life through the lens of songwriting and poetry. I tend to get little scraps of writing done constantly throughout each day and night of my life. The real challenge is to build and create finished pieces and to uncover the truth of a particular song. The words have to be just right and I don't stop until I get it right."

Connections to Nature with Lars Turin

10:00 AM - Meredith

The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is pleased to represent potter Lars Turin as our June Artist of the Month. Connections to Nature is an exhibit of both his functional and sculptural pieces. During the month of June his work will be featured at the Meredith Fine Craft Gallery. Lars Turin’s works-in-clay are inspired by his interpersonal relationship to self and others and from the forces within nature and the patterns that those forces create, especially those on the seacoast. He utilizes a number of different clay techniques and processes to create his distinct textured pieces. Design results are either inherent in the cracking clay or enhanced by marks I make on the outer surface, either by scoring the surface or impressing a pattern into it. Please join us at League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery on June 7th from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm to Meet the Artist, this is free and open to the public. Lars Turin will be at the Gallery, watch him demonstrate his work, see the craft come together, ask questions, and listen to his stories. For more information, call the Gallery at (603) 279-7920.

Gibson's Book Club Reads The Bees, by Laline Paull

7:00 PM - Concord

The Handmaid's Tale meets The Hunger Games in this brilliantly imagined debut set in an ancient culture where only the queen may breed and deformity means death. Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, a member of the lowest caste in her orchard hive where work and sacrifice are the highest virtues and worship of the beloved Queen the only religion. But Flora is not like other bees. With circumstances threatening the hive's survival, her curiosity is regarded as a dangerous flaw but her courage and strength are an asset. She is allowed to feed the newborns in the royal nursery and then to become a forager, flying alone and free to collect pollen. She also finds her way into the Queen's inner sanctum, where she discovers mysteries about the hive that are both profound and ominous. But when Flora breaks the most sacred law of all--daring to challenge the Queen's fertility--enemies abound, from the fearsome fertility police who enforce the strict social hierarchy to the high priestesses jealously wedded to power. Her deepest instincts to serve and sacrifice are now overshadowed by an even deeper desire, a fierce maternal love that will bring her into conflict with her conscience, her heart, her society--and lead her to unthinkable deeds. Thrilling, suspenseful and spectacularly imaginative, The Bees gives us a dazzling young heroine and will change forever the way you look at the world outside your window. Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Ron Goodgame & Donna Canney 2015 Educational Programming

7:00 PM - Wolfeboro

Maine Boy Goes to War – Lecture and Book Signing by Author Paul Marshall Paul Marshall is a retired United Methodist Minister who grew up in the woods of northern Maine, living in a one -room tarpaper shack. His world changed dramatically when he was drafted and served as a combat medic during WW II. In Europe he saw images of death and destruction that would haunt him forever. Two decades after the war, Marshall was given a chance of a lifetime to turn the tide of destruction into hope. In 1964 Marshall and his family moved to Truk, an island lagoon in the South Pacific, where he built and ran a school for future Micronesian leaders. On the island he saw how the same super powers that brought about World War II had also dominated and oppressed the people of Micronesia. So he set out to make a difference in their lives by encouraging their autonomy and freedom through the power of love and family. Reverend Marshall’s book will be for sale at the lecture. Doors open at 6:00 program begins at 7:00. Call 569-1212 to reserve your seats.
