The Bridges That Connect within Aminatta Forna's Happiness


English teacher Nancy Hughes offers readers a framework through which to consider Aminatta Forna’s novel Happiness (2018) and encourages participants to enter into discussion with her and each other about the book. Ms. Hughes’ talk takes up the question of “What single word do you most identify with?” The book is available at the Wolfeboro Public Library and local bookstores.

200 Women is an international photography exhibition that offers a representation of global diversity. Through powerful images and their words, these women—some famous, some not—present themselves, their stories and their humanity to viewers.

The women respond to five questions: Which single word do you most identify with? What really matters to you? What brings you happiness What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? What would you change if you could? Which single word do you most identify with? What really matters to you?

The 200 Women exhibition will be open to the public during the month of May and the virtual speaker series is every Tuesday evening 7:00-8:00 p.m. April 26 through May 24.

This project was funded in part through a Community Project Grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
