New Hampshire Humanities has received a $20,000 grant from Lincoln Financial Foundation to support its Connections adult literacy program. New Hampshire Humanities Connections is a book discussion program offered statewide in partnership with adult basic education and ESOL classes, the prisons, and refugee resettlement organizations to promote English language skills, nurture a culture of reading, and support family literacy.
What can poetry offer adults from all over the world who are just beginning to write in English? Carol Birch's ESOL students at the Dover Adult Learning Center were about to find out. During their four-part Connections book discussion series on Food, Family and Friendships, the class read How My Parents Learned to Eat by Ina Freidman and illustrated by Allen Say.
