International Institute of New England presents... Suitcase Stories
Sunday September 29, 7PM
Nashua High School North
8 Titan Way
Nashua, NH 03063
Suitcase Stories® is a signature program of the International Institute of New England. It raises the profile of refugees and immigrants while strengthening community through the art of storytelling.
Launched in 2016, Suitcase Stories began as a traveling live performance series featuring foreign and U.S.-born residents sharing powerful refugee and immigrant stories. Since its initial year, the initiative has expanded to include programming customized for community partners. To date, more than 3,000 people have enjoyed a mainstage performance and thousands more have watched a taped episode on PBS television. The response from those audience members spoke of how the performance challenged and expanded their perceptions of refugees and immigrants.
World Affairs Discussion Group
Mondays 4 PM - 5 PM
Portsmouth Public Library
Are you fascinated by international affairs and the world of foreign policy? If so, please join Library Director Steve Butzel and a group of your peers in the Hilton Garden Inn Room on Mondays to discuss two topics that are voted on in advance by the group.
If you plan on attending and would like to vote on the week's possible topics, send our Director an email at skbutzel@cityofportsmouth, and he will send you a link to the webpage where you can vote. The list of topics is posted each Wednesday afternoon and voting concludes that Friday afternoon. At that point, the Director will send out an email to the group letting them know the two selected topics, and a list of links to suggested articles.
Where do we get our possible topics and a set of suggested articles from each week? From the World Affairs Council of America's Weekly World News Update webpage.
For more information, contact our director, firstname.lastname@example.org.
