From the first settlers to today’s newsmakers, professor and author Ann Page Stecker will share her long-term view of New Hampshire people and trends in a program titled “Negotiating New Hampshire’s Crosscurrents” on Monday, April 18, at 7:00 p.m. at the Lebanon Public Library Community Room. There is no admission fee. The room is handicapped-accessible.
The event is co-sponsored by the Lebanon Historical Society and the Lebanon Public Libraries and was postponed from February, due to inclement weather.
Stecker is co-author of a classic history of the state’s economic and political development, “New Hampshire: Crosscurrents in Its Development,” and has recently edited the book’s third edition, addressing the Claremont school funding case and the evolution of Tyco and Cabletron.
Stecker is the David H. Winton Endowed Teaching Chair and Coordinator of the Wesson Honors Program at Colby-Sawyer College. She also co-wrote “Sisters of Fortune” which is a biography of a family in Keene, based on the letters three sisters wrote to their father who went to California in the Gold Rush.
