“New Voices” is an extension of the Connections reading and book discussion program, bringing an opportunity to students learning English to develop their own stories. Through “New Voices,” professional writers meet immigrant writers, learn from each other, edit words for power and clarity, and explore ways that bilingual writers bring new creativity to expression in English.
Open Questions is a new series of thought-provoking community conversations presented by New Hampshire Humanities as part of our Humanities to Go speakers’ bureau.
