Two presentations are coming to the Wilmot Library.
On Friday, October 14, at 7 PM, photographer Marc Beerman will give a slide presentation and share stories of his experience traveling and photographing wildlife in Africa.
Known as “Old Man” to his children – long before he turned gray – he is now known as the Old Man Photographer. Marc has a strong love of nature, and his main focus has been centered on wildlife and landscape photography. “My camera allows me to explore and capture the innocence, simplicity, and beauty of the world around me.”
On Wednesday, November 9, at 7 PM, local author Mary Kronenwetter will talk about her book Pauper Auction, a riveting tale that describes the practice of New England towns auctioning off their poor to the highest bidder.
A New Englander by birth and disposition, Mary grew up in a 19th-century Massachusetts farmhouse complete with a well, barn, outbuildings, and pasture and fields lined with stone walls. She holds a doctorate in education and has taught at colleges in the United States, China, and Japan. Mary now lives in the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Region and has served as a museum educator at Historic Deerfield, the John Hay Estate at The Fells, and the Enfield Shaker Museum.
Both talks will take place at the Wilmot Library, 11 North Wilmot Road in Wilmot. For more information call 603 526-6804 or email WilmotLibrary@nullcomcast.net.
