Spring Concert with Out on a Limb @ Peabody Library
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Spring Concert with Out on a Limb @ Peabody Library
Out on a Limb returns to the Peabody Library!

Out on a Limb – “from Hank to Hendrix” – acoustic music across the traditions, from the Upper Valley’s most-elusive band.

We seek out the horizons of acoustic music, travel out there to the edge, and then do our best to fall right off.
We play and sing old-time bluegrass and gospel, fiddle tunes, obscure roots music, and covers of classic rock you might hear on the car radio.  Sometimes we do that all at the same time.
Melissa DiSiervo – Norwich, VT – clarinet, banjo
Steve Glazer – Thetford Center, VT – guitar
Erin Smith – Lebanon, NH  – fiddle, upright bass
Rick Barrows – Thetford Center, VT – mandolin
We love to sing and play for you, come on out and see what all the fuss is about~!

Thetford Poet Elisabeth Horan Book Launch @ Latham Library
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Thetford Poet Elisabeth Horan Book Launch @ Latham Library
Elisabeth Horan will be launching her debut solo collection of poetry, “Bad Mommy Stay Mommy”, at Latham Library.  Thetford poet Horan found herself in the grip of postpartum depression after the birth of her second son.  In this debut collection, published by Fly on the Wall Press on May 10th, Horan finds the courage to survive, and she shares that strength with others experiencing this silent illness.
Horan finds herself influenced by the infamous Sylvia Plath, feeling an affinity with Plath’s own depression and turmoil as a mother.  “Stay Mommy is a poem I wrote while thinking of her.  To feel so bad that we might leave our children, is a darkness unfathomable to some.  But it is real.  I know it, she knew it.”
To preorder a limited edition of “Bad Mommy Stay Mommy” go to the Fly on the Wall shop: www.flyonthewallpoetry.co.uk, Amazon, or Waterstones online.  Also at Indie Bound: https://www.indiebound.org/book/9781999598631
