Hobbs Story Swap celebrates with special show

On Friday, Dec. 15, from noon till 2:15 pm, the Hobbs Story Swap will celebrate its second anniversary with stories, refreshments, and a special concert by Albany, NH storyteller Andy Davis.

Everyone is invited to the party! Come and hear or tell stories on the theme of “THE WEATHER OUTSIDE...,” and listen to Andy Davis telling some of the best tales from his repertoire. Included will be a tale born out of his father’s World War II experience, a dream sequence about the New Hampshire primary, the story of a ghostly librarian, a smattering of poetry -- and perhaps something canine and shaggy.

Come and put your name in the hat to share your memory of “The Weather Outside” in a 5-minute story, or just come to listen. Bring a brown-bag lunch if you wish; we’ll provide beverages and party foods! For more information contact Jo Radner at jradner@american.edu.

Adult Book Discussion

Our 2018 Maine Humanities Council ‘Let’s Talk About It’ series is

“Family and Self: Readings In Twentieth Century Japanese Fiction”

In Japan, with its strong legacy of Confucian values and traditional emphasis of group over the individual, the family plays an exceptionally important role. This series explores five novels— two authored by women and three by men—each engaged with issues of both family and self in a changing Japan, but from widely differing perspectives. The first book we will discuss, Enchi Fumiko’s The Waiting Years, was published in 1957 but is set in the Meiji Period (1868-1912) during the years of Japan’s rapid growth as a modern nation state.

The other four books are:

The Makioka Sisters by Tanizaki Junichirô

The Setting Sun by Dazai Osamu

A Personal Matter by Nobel laureate Ôe Kenzaburô

Good-bye Tsugumi by Yoshimoto Banana

All books in the series are available, free of charge, at our library.

Restorative Yoga postures help to relieve the effects of stress. Through the use of props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps, chairs and the wall a completely supportive environment for total relaxation is created.

While supported in these postures the student will be given guidance to explore the body and breath and learn the art of relaxation for body and mind.

Annual Tree Lighting Party with Santa

After we light the tree we will sing carols, helped by carolers from the Lovell UCC. If we sing loud enough Santa and Mrs. Claus might stop by. They usually travel through Lovell on a big red fire truck. All children present will have a chance to visit with Santa and receive a small gift. Hot chocolate, coffee and desert items will be served. We need lots of help with baking Holiday bars and cookies. You can sign up at the library.

Another way to help out is to make a monetary donation towards the literary gifts that Santa gives to every child that attends the tree lighting.

Come join your neighbors for some Holiday cheer.

Story Swap led Jo Radner

It’s almost Halloween. Makes sense that SCARY STORIES will be this month’s theme for the Charlotte Hobbs Story Swap, which will meet on Friday, October 27, from noon till 1:30. All are welcome, listeners as well as tellers!

So many things can be scary – not just ghosts. What haunts you? Have you had a close call with danger? A nightmare? The stories need not be personal – come with a folktale, a spooky story from a dark and stormy night, a “jump” tale to keep us all awake. Tell us a story from our world’s recent catastrophes, or from history. Or tease us with a mystery. It’s the season to look our fears in the face.

Come and put your name in the hat to share a 5-minute story, or just come to listen.

Bring a brown-bag lunch if you wish; we’ll provide beverages.
