From the first European settlers to today’s newsmakers, professor and author Ann Page Stecker will share her long-term view of people and trends in New Hampshire history in a presentation titled “Negotiating New Hampshire’s Crosscurrents” at the Lebanon Historical Society on Monday, February 21.
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.
The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Marion Carter Home at the corner of Colburn Park and Bank Street in downtown Lebanon. Parking and the building entrance is on Bank Street, next to the AVA Gallery.
