Digging In to the Isles of Shoals, Sunday Jan 27 2013

The Friends of the Rye Public Library invite you to attend the first in their 2013 programming series.  Dr. Nathan Hamilton comes ashore to share his archaeological adventures on the Isles of Shoals.

In just four years of an ongoing “dig” at the Isles of Shoals, Nathan Hamilton and his archaeology students have unearthed 250,000 artifacts. Those bones, stones, and fragments of human occupation tell volumes about life on a rock.  Learn more about their work and findings at this entertaining and educational presentation.  Dr. Hamilton notes:  “Many people who live at the edge of the sea, deposit their refuse at the edge of the sea.” And what makes this site, the western end of Smuttynose, so useful for archaeologists is that it is undisturbed.

Local Authors Night – Thursday 1/24/2013

Join local authors K.D. Mason (Killer Run) and Kathleen Lockwood (Major League Bride) as they read from and discuss their latest works here at Rye Public Library.

 

Kathleen Lockwood and her husband ,former Red Sox pitcher Skip Lockwood, currently live in Rye, NH.  During Skip’s career in the major leagues, Kathleen spent twelve years in the company of exceptional women on six different teams as her husband was periodically traded, sold, sent down, brought up, and released. Her memoir, Major League Bride: An Inside Look at Life Outside the Ballpark, is a diary of growth, a journal of struggle, and an account of bizarrely truthful stranger-than-fiction events involving eccentric teammates.

 

Doug Zechel, former owner of Saunders at Rye Harbor, is a lifelong runner and sailor.  With a new endeavor, writing under the pseudonym K.D. Mason, Zechel lives on the New Hampshire seacoast with his wife of over 40 years and two cats, Molly and Sweet Pea. They have two grown children, a son who lives in Las Vegas with his wife and step daughter, and a daughter who with her husband and their daughter now live in California. Recently retired from a lifetime of working in the restaurant business, he now weaves compelling tales of mystery, romance and suspense set on the NH Seacoast.
