Although the curtain is still up on 2012, we are well into scheduling public programs for 2013. January alone has no fewer than seven offerings designed to appeal to a wide range of interests and audiences:
Jan. 3, 12PM: Immigration, Education, and Photography in 1920s Portland (Speaker: American & New England Studies graduate Rachel Miller)
Jan. 15, 12PM: Maine Ski Competition: Highlights from the Last 100 Years (Speakers: Ski Museum staff Bruce Miles & Scott Andrews)
Jan. 22, 6:30PM: first session of We Are What We Ate book group (deadline for registration is January 11; group runs monthly through May)
Jan. 24, 7PM: Dirigo North and South: Maine’s Long and Varied Connection with the Polar World (polar expert Charles Lagerbom)
Jan. 29, 12PM: Book Event: Hoosh: Roast Penguin, Scurvy Day, and Other Stories of Antarctic Cuisine (author Jason Anthony)
Plus, two new “Intro to MHS” workshops start in January: a library tour, and a Maine Memory Network demo workshop. These will repeat six times throughout the year, as will a new library catalog workshop, and museum accession/MHS PastPerfect Online workshop, both of which begin in February. The tour and the workshops are free of charge and just require advance notification of attendance.
