Presenter: Erin Moulton
Folk tales are passed from one generation to another, embellished by time and teller: “Ethan Crawford was as tall as Mount Washington. He could carry at least seven men on his back!” Yet, when we look at folk tales, the people who compiled them and the location from which they spring, we can access history in a new and entertaining way. Join us to hear and explore folk tales collected by the New Hampshire Women’s Federation (1932) and dig into local resources in search of truths. Was it tall tale or town history?
Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!
