Author Talk & Book Signing: Water Connections

Author Talk & Book Signing: Water Connections

New Hampshire author James Rousmaniere discusses his book Water Connections, which explores what fresh water means to us and what we mean to water. Published in June 2019, the book covers water-related changes in technology, pollution, economic values, and ideas about nature from the Industrial Revolution to today.

Water Connections focuses primarily on New Englanders’ experiences with water, including floods and flood control, hydropower’s evolving technology, watershed protection, and citizen action in the cause of water protection. The book is as much about people as it is about water, with stories about conservationists, artists, reservoir managers, fishermen, scientists, and ordinary citizens around water.

After graduating from Harvard, Rousmaniere surveyed irrigation canals in southern India as a Peace Corps volunteer and then began a 43-year career in journalism. He reported on economics in the Washington bureau of The Baltimore Sun before being named editor and president of The Keene (NH) Sentinel, from which he is now retired.

Live Well, Die Well Book Talk

Live Well, Die Well Book Talk

Join Kimberly C. Paul for a conversation about her book, Bridging the Gap. Paul will share personal stories and the life lessons she has learned while working with hospice patients over the last 18 years. Through storytelling, Paul seeks to move beyond the current standards of what death has come to mean in our culture. It is Paul's hope that Bridging The Gap will empower people to design their death to reflect people's values and personalities. Death is not a final destination but a transcendental beginning.

Artist Talk: Timothy Segar

Artist Talk: Timothy Segar

Timothy Segar discusses the exhibit Character Development, which consists of steel sculptures on view outside the Museum (May 1–November 5) and works on paper displayed in the South Gallery (June 22–September 23).

“My practice as an artist has hinged on the dynamic between my two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects,” Segar said. “In both, the metaphors revolve around the interaction of individuals in groups and the drama of active forms.”

Author Talk & Book Signing: We Are Everywhere

Author Talk & Book Signing: We Are Everywhere

Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown discuss their book We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation. Riemer and Brown are the creators of queerhistory.com and Instagram’s @lgbt_history.

Brown is an attorney and Riemer is a former attorney, writer, and lecturer. The two live in Washington, DC, where they enjoy “fighting fascists, spending time with their dog, and disrupting fundamentalists’ worldviews.”

This talk is presented in conjunction with Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts, a retrospective of work by the acclaimed photographer and activist. Riemer and Brown said of McAdams, “Cutting her teeth in Harvey Milk’s Castro as women and queer people demanded more, perfecting her eye in the East Village as a generation fought an epidemic, lending a hand to the fight against injustice and erasure wherever she lands, Dona is an activist, in the truest sense of the word.”

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
