as author Philip McFarland presents his fascinating book

 

John Hay, Friend of Giants:  The Man and Life connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt

 

Mark Twain believed that John Hay was "the only one of whom the entire nation is proud. Proud and thankful." Theodore Roosevelt once said of John Hay, "he was the most delightful man to talk to I ever met, for in his conversation he continually made out of hand those delightful epigrammatic remarks which we would all like to make."  We are pleased to welcome author and historian Philip McFarland back to The Fells. Mr. McFarland will speak about his recently published book, John Hay, Friend of Giants; the Man and Life Connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt. The presentation will take place on the Veranda of the Main House. Members: $10, non-members: $15. Advanced registration is requested, though walk-ins are welcome. Register online here or call 603-763-4789 ext 3.

Philip McFarland was born in Birmingham, Alabama, where he attended public schools before entering Phillips Exeter Academy. He majored in history at Oberlin College, served for 3 1/2 years in the U.S. Navy, then took a degree in English at Cambridge University. He now lives in Lexington, Massachusetts. His most recent book, which Rowman and Littlefield Publishers brought out in March 2017, is JOHN HAY, FRIEND OF GIANTS: THE MAN AND THE LIFE CONNECTING ABRAHAM LINCOLN, MARK TWAIN, HENRY JAMES, AND THEODORE ROOSEVELT. Other titles by Mr. McFarland are MARK TWAIN AND THE COLONEL, LOVES OF HARRIET BEECHER STOWE, HAWTHORNE IN CONCORD, THE BRAVE BOSTONIANS, SEA DANGERS, AND SOJOURNER.

ROBERT AZZI


A conversation about Identity and Islam:

 

about being American-Arab-Muslim in America

 

 

After introductory comments, Robert Azzi will engage the audience in a conversation entitled, "Ask a Muslim Anything.”

 

Azzi has appeared at nearly 50 public libraries across New Hampshire, as well as in schools, churches, town halls, retirement communities and other venues discussing Islam, Muslims,  political, and cultural issues related to Identity, the Middle East and the "Other." 

 

Robert Azzi is a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, photographer, writer, consultant and advisor on Middle East issues. Born and raised in Manchester NH, he has spent most of his professional life as a photojournalist in the Middle East and, while based in Beirut, Lebanon, his work appeared in Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Paris Match. He writes not to convince people of the “rightness” of his positions but because he believes that an awareness of the Other’s narrative is essential both for our national and global consciousness while enhancing  America's security.

 

"I want to start a conversation.”

No Topic is Off the Table.
