Center for the Arts Announces New Monthly Program, Humanities Mondays


LONDON, NH - The Center for the Arts (CFA) is excited to announce a new monthly program in 2024 called Humanities Monday, which will replace Tapestry Tuesday from years prior. The program will be held on the third Monday of each month throughout the year focusing on thought-provoking humanities based programs discussing culture, history, places, and ideas. Some of these speakers are in partnership with New Hampshire Humanities.

On Monday, January 15th Tom Farmen will present the first Humanities Monday program titled ‘How To Self-Publish Your Book with Tom Farmen’. This fun presentation will briefly work through the checklist of items and the associated costs before your creative plot, dazzling photographs, delicious recipes, or expository masterpiece can find its way to a bookstore shelf or a stranger’s coffee table. Writing a book is generally easier and more enjoyable than self-publishing the manuscript. Holding that final product in your hands and noting the first sale is wonderfully gratifying and well worth the effort.

On Monday, February 19th Charley Freiberg will present ‘Historic Preservation Photography in New England.” As a local photographer, Charley will talk about the purpose of Preservation Photography, the techniques required, and some of the places he has had to photograph. 

On Monday, March 18th, local poet Sandra Little will present ‘Humor in Poetry.’ The program will consist of Sandy reading poems she has written to capture events with a twist of humor. The background of each poem helps put the content into perspective.

“The Humanities program is focused on the enrichment of the community by going deeper into our culture and experiences as people in the Lake Sunapee region. As much as possible we try to tap into local talent and local learnings to broaden our understanding of place and culture. We are gifted with many experts in this community and beyond so it is a joy to share these stories and teachings with our local audiences in this valuable series.” - Executive Director, Dena Stahlheber

Each Humanities Mondays presentation will begin at 5:30pm and will take place at Whipple Hall in New London and is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to reserve a seat as space is limited, by emailing
