An Evening of Yankee Humor

Wednesday, November 1, 2023 (7:30 PM - 9:30 PM) (EDT)


The Walker Lecture Series invites you to An Evening of Yankee Humor with Rebecca Rule and Fred Marple Rebecca Rule hosted the New Hampshire Authors Series for ten years on NHPBS and now hosts Our Hometown on NHPBS. She’s been telling stories in New England, especially NH, for more than thirty years. She hasn’t visited every town in the Granite State, but has found her way to many of them — speaking at libraries, historical societies, church groups, and charitable organizations. She likes collecting stories because “they’re free and you don’t have to dust them." For New Hampshire Magazine she writes the monthly AYUH column, sharing humor of our region and our time. 

Yankee humorist Fred Marple has appeared on New Hampshire Chronicle, on the radio, at town halls, church basements, and the homes of most of his friends, usually right around dinner time. Fred’s humor columns have appeared in Yankee Magazine, New Hampshire Magazine, and many others. He is the author of Welcome to Frost Heaves—a collection of stories from the most under-appreciated town in New Hampshire—and two CDs, Crabby Road and My Mountain. Fred’s video spoof “Yoga for Yankees” has been viewed more than 6 million times online, which just goes to show that people have way too much time on their hands. Fred is a graduate of the Frost Heaves Academy and the East Coast School of Knife Sharpening and Carburetor Repair.
