Local author Olga Morrill defines what is fact and what is fiction in The Vagabond Trilogy, an historical fiction series that is currently in the works. Two of the three books are now published. Join the discussion! This event is sponsored by the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth, the Conway Public Library, The Pope Memorial Library in North Conway, the Madison Public Library, and the Jackson Public Library.
We will begin with Black Elk's Great Vision and his struggle to discern his calling during the events of the Great Sioux War. During his long life, Black Elk lived out his vision in three overlapping roles: as a traditional healer, a Catholic teacher, and a revivalist of Indigenous traditions. In the midst of great tragedy, Black Elk wove these three strands into one beautiful life exemplifying survival, hope, and reconciliation.
We will discuss the relevance of Black Elk's legacy for broader questions of Abenaki survival in Northern New England, hope in the face of global environmental problems, and reconciliation in the midst of growing political and religious sectarianism. This talk is based on extensive historical research, extended residency in Indian Country, and continuing conversation with Lakota elders.
This program is for anyone interested in learning about chess including kids, parents, and teachers. If you are a complete beginner or haven't played in a long time and need a refresher, this would be a great place to start. You'll learn about the fundamentals of chess (the chess board, pieces, and setup), the rules, some basic strategies, and how to improve your chess skills going forward.
After investing some time troubleshooting for and communicating with the team at the Museum of Bad Art, our libraries have decided to cancel the formally postponed event Living in Tough Times: From Having a Bad Day to Dystopian Apocalypse.
It was lovely to see so many familiar Jackson faces on the Zoom meeting even if I was melting into the floorboards. I know we were all looking forward to a belly laugh so please accept apologies from all parties. We are working on other awesome programs throughout the spring.
The Museum of Bad Art collects, exhibits, and celebrates art that will be seen in no other venue. Their art is sourced from thrift stores, yard sales, and even sidewalk trash. They analyze it, compare it to classic art, and share it with our thousands of fans around the world. As we endure a global pandemic, political upheaval, and unrelenting climate change, Living in Tough Times examines works from the MOBA Collection to discern how art reflects adversity.

On a mountain somewhere above treeline, in some of the coldest and worst winter conditions imaginable, two men lie unconscious in the snow as explosive winds batter the nearby summits.
In The Last Traverse: Tragedy and Resilience in the Winter Whites, Ty Gagne masterfully lays out the events that led up to an epic and legendary rescue attempt in severe and dangerous winter conditions in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. More than a cautionary tale, it is a tribute to all the volunteers and professionals who willingly put themselves in harm's way to save lives. This is a must read for anyone who hikes the Whites.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson Public Library. Registration is open to anyone and we have 100 'seats' in our Zoom subscription. In the unlikely event that over 100 people register, priority will be given to Jackson Library card holders and members of the Friends of the Jackson Public Library.
On Tuesday, January 26 at 6 p.m., the Cook Memorial Library, with the Madison Library, the Tamworth Economic Development Commission, the Tamworth Planning Board, Mount Washington Valley Economic Council, MWV Housing Coalition, MWV Age-Friendly Community, and UNH Cooperative Extension, will partner with New Hampshire PBS to offer an online screening of this film followed by a panel discussion with people working to improve the human ecology of the Mount Washington Valley and surrounding area.
