Dublin School offers winter chats by the fire and under the stars!

You may have come to Dublin School to see a play or hear a concert, now we invite you to join friends and neighbors for some thought-provoking discussions. Community Discussions on lively topics will be held monthly from January through April. We would like you to join us!

On Wednesday, January 25, 2012, from 7 to 8 pm, the topic will be The Pull of Monadnock; What brings people here? Three community members will pose questions about the past, present and future of life in the Monadnock Region. Henry Walters, an English teacher at Dublin School, will look at the past, particularly the transcendentalists who came to climb Monadnock; Joan Griffin, Attorney and Author of Women at Play, will discuss the present and how the region affects the way in which we lead our lives; Ed Germain, former Professor of English, Planning Board Chair, and Selectman, will sketch the outlook for our communities’ (and our own) future with an eye toward our unique way of life. Each will introduce questions and issues to discuss.

No RSVP necessary, just join us for an informal discussion in front of a fire at Dublin School’s Old Schoolhouse. Dessert and coffee will be served.

And mark your calendar to View the Winter Night Sky February 22 or 24 (snow/cloud date) to be held at the Perkin Observatory at Dublin School. View the stars through the Perkin telescope learn about the Winter Sky and constellations from Jonathan Weis, Director of the Observatory.
