New Hampshire Humanities Presents: Lynn Novick
October 14, 2021 |
New Hampshire Humanities is pleased to bring our 2021 Annual Celebration to The Dana Center at Saint Anselm College.
A celebration of the humanities and the power of human connection, our signature event features keynote speaker and filmmaker Lynn Novick. She has been directing and producing landmark documentary films about American life and culture, history, politics, sports, art, architecture, literature, and music for more than 30 years. The 86 hours of acclaimed PBS programming she has created in collaboration with Ken Burns include Ernest Hemingway, The Vietnam War, Baseball, Jazz, Frank Lloyd Wright, The War, and Prohibition, all landmark series that have garnered 19 Emmy nominations. One of the most respected documentary filmmakers and story tellers in America, Novick herself has received Emmy, Peabody, and Alfred I. Dupont Columbia Awards.
The past year has shown us the value of human connection and the critical knowledge gained through the humanities – in our world and in our neighborhoods. Help us continue to offer hundreds of programs that ignite conversation and open minds and hearts by inviting people to think, learn, and connect with one another.
This year’s gala will begin at 5 p.m. with heavy hors d’oeuvres and cash bar followed by our program from 6 - 7:30 p.m.
