Discovering New England Stone Walls
Kevin’s informal talk covers a few of the main topics of his book about New England stone walls, The Granite Kiss (Countryman Press), touching on history, technique, stylistic development, and aesthetics. He explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. Other topics may include: differences in approach between historical and contemporary wall-builders, a discussion of restoration tips and techniques, and information about design, acquisition of materials, preservation, and analysis. There is always a generous question-and-answer period, during which listeners are encouraged to bring up specific problems or projects on their own properties.

The health care law makes health insurance affordable for millions who are uninsured and provides new benefits for all Americans. The law also requires most Americans to have health insurance by 2014.
A representative of Planned Parenthood will be at the Chesterfield Public Library on March 11th, from 1 to 4 PM, to help you understand what the law means for you–like what to consider in choosing a health plan, how to get help paying for it, and how to enroll. No appointments are necessary.
The Chesterfield Library has a limited number of passes to the Cheshire Children’s Museum available for checkout. The library pass is good for 1/2 price admission for up to 4 people.
