Tell Me a Story

The Hooksett Historical Society in association with the Hooksett Public Library will be holding its next speaker program on Thursday May 26,2011 at 6:30 pm at the Public Library. Rebecca Rule will present That Reminds Me of a Story: Yankee Humor and the New England Storytelling Tradition Good stories never die, they evolve from teller to teller. New England has a rich and ongoing storytelling tradition from folklore to ″Bert and I″ to stories about your family, your life, or the town you live in. Humorist Rebecca Rule will prime the pump with stories she’s collected at small-town gatherings, often at historical societies and libraries, over the last ten years, plus a classic or two. Our ″discussion″ will be the stories that listeners offer up, and as one story leads to another — humorous, serious, thought-provoking, or just plain entertaining — we practice and preserve our stories and tradition. And laugh, a lot. The Program is made possible by the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Don’t forget Heritage on May 28 and the Societies Historic Treasure Hunt
