What makes a good story?  “It’s when I become you,” an ESOL student once said in his class. Much of Beth Olshansky’s workshop for teachers, “Creating Identity Texts in the Multilingual Classroom,” offers a process  - beginning with art -  to create stories that help readers enter a story so deeply they become the child they are reading about.

New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to present nationally renowned broadcast journalist Susan Stamberg as keynote speaker at the 2018 Annual Dinner on October 3. The first woman to anchor a national nightly news program, Stamberg has won every major award in broadcasting and has been with National Public Radio since the network launched almost 50 years ago.

Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera had just arrived at the Adult Learning Center in Nashua, his second day with New Hampshire Humanities' Connections program. "For me," a student tells him, "the Learning Center is my second house."

First Lady of New Hampshire Valerie Sununu hosted a reception to welcome and celebrate our new executive director Anthony Poore in May at the Bridges House, the Governor’s official residence. If you haven’t yet met Anthony, please feel free to drop him a note at!
