Library Summer Forum

Thursdays During July

The Olivia Rodham Memorial Summer Lecture Series is a wonderful instructive yet entertaining (or is it entertaining yet instructive?) program featuring speakers from Nelson, (or occasionally not, but with strong Nelson connections). Each presentation is preceded by a few minutes of music, and followed by a social in library, where you can enjoy refreshments, visit with your neighbors, and ask more questions of the speaker.

Below are the programs that were held in 2012. The 2013 program should be in place by late spring.

July 5 – Teri Upton: “The Pennsylvania Settlement, an Art Colony in Nelson, NH”, with musical introduction by Linda Singer &  Vladimir Odinokikh.

July 12 – Rich Popovic: “Locally Grown Music for Locally Grown Kids:
Writing and Recording Children’s Music in Nelson”, with musical introduction by Wayland Tolman-Anderson.

July 19 – Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music: “Playing for Peace”, featuring international students from the Playing for Peace program.

July 26 – Eric and Sara Sandberg, “Adventures in the Foreign Service”, with musical introduction by Gordon Peery and the New Grey Cats

Musical introduction by local musicians starts around 6:45
