TILTON — Storyteller Rebecca Rule will tell stories of the North Country’s logging industry as she presents a public lecture Thursday, Oct. 12, at 2 p.m. at the New Hampshire Veterans Home.
The talk, titled “Crosscut: Mills, Logging and Life on the Androscoggin,” will be held in the Home’s Town Hall auditorium, and is free and open to the public.
Rule, who hosts “Our Hometown” on NH Public Television, uses oral histories and new and vintage photos to relay the story of that special place north of the notches. Audience members will be invited to offer their own stories and thoughts on the region and the logging and paper industries.
Rule’s talk will be supplemented with a PowerPoint presentation of photos and information on the subject thanks to her husband, John Rule, an archivist for the New Hampshire Historical Society.
The event is made possible, in part, through a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
Rebecca Rule, who gathers and tells stories in New England, mostly in New Hampshire, is the author of 11 books, including a children’s picture book. For 10 years, she hosted the “New Hampshire Authors Series” on NHPTV.
The New Hampshire Veterans Home is located at 139 Winter St.
