Aug 11 Jay Craven & NH’s Tribute to Howard Frank Mosher
Howard Frank Mosher participated in the 2012 Tory Hill Authors Series speaking about his decision to embark on a 100-city, cross-country tour of many of America’s best independent book stores, a journey he chronicled in The Great Northern Express: A Writer’s Journey Home.  Unfortunately, the Vermont author died on January 29, 2017 and he is greatly missed. We are thrilled to be able to offer a New Hampshire Tribute to this wonderful story teller.  
Filmmaker Jay Craven worked closely with the Northeast Kingdom writer, making five films based on his stories.  Craven will present reflections on his 28-year collaboration with Mosher and a screening of his first Mosher feature film, “Where the Rivers Flow North.”  Craven wrote, “Like his character, Quebec Bill, in Disappearances, Howard Mosher was an indefatigable optimist and adventurer.  He wrote every day, in longhand on yellow legal pads, and lived his life, non-stop, with visions of character and story percolating in his imagination.”
Mosher’s last book was released this spring. Points North is both humorous and heartbreaking, and, without a wasted word, immerses the reader in Kingdom County, a sliver of America where cold waters harbor brook trout, small communities fight tooth and nail to maintain their signature individualism, and explorations of family history sometimes lead to unsettling revelations

Honor the Children Day at Indian Museum August 11, 2018


Honor the Children Day at Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum, Saturday 11th August.

How much do we value our children? Parents will immediately respond, ‘priceless!’, and that goes without saying. Our children are our most precious gift and through our children, we will live on into the future. Native Americans speak about seven generations and strive to live, work and make decisions for the benefit of their next seven generations. It is an ancient tradition such that we ourselves are someone’s seventh generation. They prepared the world for us as we do the same for our progeny. It a principle, Native or not, all parents understand. The child archetype connects to each of us in a personal way as well. We were all children once and we can perhaps remember the innocence and freedom. It’s good to ask ourselves whether we still know how to laugh and enjoy life.

Honor the Children Day is exclusively sponsored by the Board of Trustees at Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, New Hampshire. The Museum is celebrating children of the past, current and future with a special event to be held at the Museum on Saturday 11th August from 10am until 3pm. Honor the Children Day is a day for children of all ages and cultures to come and have fun at the Museum. They can learn to make rattles, listen to a traditional storyteller, play games, enjoy a variety of crafts and hear a Native American Elder share with the children. Older children, under supervision, can learn how to throw a tomahawk, maybe even parents can try too. Later in the afternoon, the children can do the ‘Honor Dance’, using the very same rattles they have made themselves.

It is a day to bring everyone together to have fun and enjoy being outdoors in the wonderful New Hampshire summer. Because the Board of Trustees is sponsoring this special day, admission to the event is free. Bring along a picnic lunch and enjoy the entire day!

For more details call the Museum at 603-456-2600, email info@indianmuseum.org, or visit our website www.indianmuseum.org.
