Rebecca Rule in Stoddard Sat Jan. 22 @ 7pm

New Hampshire Humanities Council speaker Rebecca Rule will present her inimitable Yankee humor at the Stoddard Town Hall Saturday January 22 at 7pm. Her presentation is “That Reminds Me of a Story: Yankee Humor and the New England Storytelling Tradition.”

Good stories never die; they evolve from teller to teller. Ms. Rule will prime the pump of New England storytelling tradition with stories she’s collected at small town gatherings over the past ten years, along with a classic or two. Listeners offer up stories, and, as one humorous, serious, thought-provoking story leads to another, the entertaining New England storytelling tradition is preserved.

Ms. Rule has written several books, including: The Best Revenge: Short Stories; Could Have Been Worse: True Stories, Embellishments, and Outright Lies; and a new book Live Free or Eat Pie: A Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire. She writes a book review column for three NH newspapers and hosts the New Hampshire Authors Series on New Hampshire Public Radio.

The Friends of the Davis Public Library and the Stoddard Historical Society invite you to join us for a very entertaining evening. The Stoddard Town Hall is on Rt 123N with parking in the back. Refreshments will be served.

Contact the Davis Public Library for more information: 603.446.6251 or
