Random Acts of Harmony, a New Hampshire acoustic folk trio, will visit the library on Sunday, October 4, at 2 pm to kick off our annual One Book, One Town month. Their program is "Americana Music and the Stories Behind the Songs.” They will sing and tell the stories behind uniquely American songs from various historical periods—songs of triumph, sorrow, and tragedy, as well as songs that mirror events over the span of our nation’s history. Random Acts of Harmony has been performing for large and small audiences throughout New England. They play acoustic guitar, 5-string banjo, and string bass. Hear them on the web at www.myspace.com/randomactsofharmony. Sorry, they do not have CDs. This program is open to adults, teens and children. If you love folk music as much as I do, you won't want to miss this event. Seating is limited, so please reserve a place by calling 424-5021 or emailing.
Our book for this October is Abigail Adams: Witness to a Revolution, by Natalie S. Bober. Ask at the Circulation Desk to check out a copy. Events for the month are tied to the themes of early American history, the Adams family, and women of political influence. I'll be blogging about the programs as they come along, but you can see a complete schedule on our web site. All of the programs are suitable for adults, teens, and older children, so we welcome families to attend.
