2023 NHH Big Read Selection
In an Edenic future, a girl and her father live close to the land in the shadow of a lone mountain, the last of humankind. When the girl finds herself alone in an unknown landscape, it is a bear that will lead her back home through a vast wilderness that offers the greatest lessons of all, if she can only learn to listen in this cautionary tale of human fragility, of love and loss.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO RECEIVE THE BOOK PRIOR TO DISCUSSION.
College students, faculty and staff have been invited to read The Bear and we encourage our fellow town members in Henniker and beyond to visit us for a spirited discussion on the contents of book and how it connects to our world today. Refreshments will be served.
