(This Zoom program has already occurred.)

The Freedom Historical Society is opening the 2023 monthly speaker season on February 22 with a program presented online via Zoom by author, storyteller, and humorist Rebecca Rule. This entertaining program entitled, “Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New Hampshire” is made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities and is free and open to the public.

Drawing from research for her book of the same name, Rebecca Rule has regaled audiences with stories of the rituals, traditions and history of town meetings, including the perennial characters, the literature, the humor, and the wisdom of this uniquely New England institution.

She has hosted the “New Hampshire Authors” series for 10 years and now hosts “Our Hometown” on NHPBS. She also writes the monthly “AYUH” column for New Hampshire Magazine. Her latest book is “That Reminds Me of a Funny Story.” She writes fiction, essays and reviews from her home in Northwood, NH.

Please register in advance using the Zoom button above, and be sure to join the meeting prior to the 7 PM start time on February 22. For additional information, call 603-491-8347.
