The Peterborough Town Library will host a new series of community conversations called “Open Questions,” presented by N.H. Humanities.

On Wednesday, March 11, at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Max Latona and Dr. Josh Tepley of Saint Anselm College will facilitate a discussion on the question, “What does it mean to be an American?” The event is free and open to the public. A snow date has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 18, at 6:30 p.m.

The Open Questions series is dedicated to exploring essential questions about meaning and life that are important to Granite Staters and is part of the N.H. Humanities To Go Program.
