Folklorist Rebecca Rule wows MWC


MOULTONBOROUGH — With sixty four in attendance on Monday, February 3, the Moultonborough Women's Club rang with peals of laughter during the performance of Becky Rule, a well known humorist and folklorist. Becky, with an effervescent sense of humor, shared quite a few New England stories and had enthusiastic audience participation. Believing these New Hampshire stories should be preserved and shared, she began collecting them 20 years ago and has over 100 performances each year. A recent highlight in her remarkable achievements was when she was awarded an honorary doctorate from New England College for storytelling and her contributions to New Hampshire. Her performance exceeded expectations and was given a standing ovation. This engagement was made possible by Harriet Bicksler applying and obtaining a NH Humanities Council grant and the public was invited to attend free of charge. More info on web site:
