The lyrics will appear on the screen and a bouncing snowflake will help us follow along. Costumes are encouraged. This will be a fun way to finish school vacation week. Our movie license won’t let us post the title, so call the Library at 286-8288 for information. The program is free and the movie rated PG.

2014 Lakes Region Community Read
Live Free and Eat Pie by Rebecca Rule
The Scrooge and Marley Coop – a gathering of librarians in the Lakes Region – has selected Live Free and Eat Pie by Rebecca Rule as its 2014 Community Read. This is a unique opportunity to delve into the local lore and the unique character of the region.
Beginning in October, participants will read the book and take part in book discussions and related programs. On Sunday, November 2nd, Ms. Rule will be at Interlakes High School to talk about her stories and answer questions from readers.
The New Hampshire Humanities Council has designated this year’s Lakes Region Community Read as one of its 40th anniversary signature grant-funded projects. We are grateful for its continued support and enthusiasm!
About the Book
Live Free and Eat Pie confirms our sense of common culture through the medium of storytelling. Although presented in the guise of a Baedeker, this book is much more. It punctuates her more factual presentations with asides and stories that reveal the particular nature of our state and culture. Live Free and Eat Pie will reacquaint natives with local lore and give newcomers a deeper sense of appreciation of where they have come to live.
This will be our book group’s next pick, and copies are available at the library!
