Hold 'er, Nute, she's
headin' for the rhubarb!
Renowned NH storyteller and native daughter Rebecca Rule appears at the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner Program on Thursday evening,
February 21st. Widely known for her live presentations of humorous New Hampshire stories, Becky will tell stories of Yankee talk and the Yankee attitude that goes along with it. By coincidence, her new book (#8 but who’s countin’) is called
Headin’ for the Rhubarb: A New Hampshire Dictionary (well, kinda).
For more than fifteen years, Rebecca has gathered and told stories of the region, doing more than 100 performances annually -- at libraries, town halls, and for a variety of gatherings, from Farm Bureau meetings to quilters’ conventions to the reunion of the Dartmouth Class of 1945. Her collection of short stories
The Best Revenge was named one of five essential New Hampshire books by New Hampshire Magazine. Other books include
Could Have Been Worse: True Stories, Embellishments, and Outright Lies; and
Live Free and Eat Pie: A Storyteller’s Guide to New Hampshire. She writes regularly for the
New Hampshire Troubadour and
UNH Magazine. She also hosts an interview show, the NH Authors Series, on NHPTV, and sometimes performs a touring program called
Crosscut, with photographs and stories on logging, the mills, and the community of Berlin.
