At the Library, Thursday 10/17 at 7:00 pm
Kevin's informal talk covers a few of the main topics of his book about New England stone walls, The Granite Kiss (Country Man Press), touching on history, technique, stylistic development, and aesthetics. He explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape. Along the way, Kevin occupies himself building a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop, using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket. He often brings along his collection of books about stonework, and copies of The Granite Kiss will be available for sale. Kevin is a writer, teacher, tradesman and lifelong resident of Hopkinton, NH. For nearly forty years he has been a stone wall builder in a family business widely know for traditional New England Stonework, particularly for historic restoration of antique structures. He has also published poetry, songs, and essays, including “Radical Resilience: American Families from 1850-2001” (with Brenda Foley), which appeared in the anthology No Higher Calling, and “Land of Stone”, an examination of several historic sites in the Monadnock Region, in the 2006 anthology Where the Mountain Stands Alone.

Moves are afoot to petition the town for a Special Town Meeting. The text of the petition is below.
Here are the ways you can sign the petition:
Bob Brown will make himself available for anyone to swing by so they can read and sign the petition across from the Greenvale Cemetery on his property: (In front of the big white fence)
Sunday 3 PM to 3:30 PM
Monday 6 PM to 6:30 PM
Otherwise, please email Janet Renaud at JRomane202@myfairpoint and she will arrange to collect your signature by meeting you somewhere.
Text of petition:
We, the undersigned, request that a Special Town Meeting be held regarding gravel and sand processing on Lot R7-28 on Forest Road, adjacent to Greenvale Cemetery.This special meeting is to correct the misimpression left at the last Town Meeting (March 2013)that a feasibility study (for $15,600) would be done to present a future warrant article to the town about relocating the DPW center to this property and to harvest thousands of dollars of gravel and sand. Instead, the warrant article was changed (illegally in some opinions) so that the BOS moved ahead and tooksteps, absent notice to abutters, or publicizing results from the feasibility study, or presenting the whole scope and details of the project to the town for a proper, informed vote. We, the undersigned, believe this project is too complicated, potentiallyinjurious to Zephyr Lake, the cemetery, the neighborhood and the townin general to be allowed to proceed absent a town vote after careful consideration.We further request that all town work on this project and property be suspended immediately until the will of the town shall be determined.
To be voted on at Special Town Meeting:
Article 1: To see if the town will vote to raise ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for sand and gravel supplies for the use by the Department of Public Works in the course of their normal activities. All activities to move or relocate any building and structures to R7 lot-28 on Forest Road shall cease, as will the collection and preparation of sand and gravel on this location.
