Epsom NH News

July 19, 2017


 

On Tuesday, July 25 at 7:00 PM. the Epsom Library will host NH author Dan Szczesny as he presents “Mosquito Rain: Alaskan Travel Essays.”  In a series of essays as far ranging as hidden salmon fishing spots to walking into glaciers to finding eagles in Valdez Bay, Szczesny’s Alaska is terrifying  and beautiful;  a land of equal parts danger and wonder.  His slide show and talk will feature travel tinged with a hint of off-road exploration.  So, brush off the mosquitoes, boil up some dehydrated noodles and sit back and enjoy discovering an Alaska you never knew existed.  Glaziers, salmon, hiking, Denali and, of course, grizzlies are all part of the adventure.  He will bring his book “Mosquito Rain” for purchase.

 

On Wednesday, July 26 at 1:30 PM, the movie matinee will feature “The Shack.”  A fun week-end camping trip for a man and his children turns into a nightmare that will change them all forever.  The film takes us on a father’s transformative spiritual journey.  This film is rated PG-13.
