The New Hampshire Humanities Council recently announced its list of “40 Over 40,” 40 New Hampshire residents who have made a significant impact on New Hampshire culture over the past 40 years. The list includes writers, filmmakers, teachers, volunteers, civic leaders, philanthropists, and scholars. Three UNH College of Liberal Arts faculty members are among the 40: Bruce Mallory, professor of education; Judith Moyer, research assistant professor emerita of history; and Charles Simic, professor emeritus of English. According to information from the Humanities Council, the 40 “have vastly enriched our human understanding…[their] original works and passion for excellence have put NH on the cultural map.” Other notable honorees are Supreme Court Justice David Souter, filmmaker Ken Burns, poet Donald Hall, and journalist Laura Knoy.
The 40 will be honored at a gala event on Tuesday, June 16 at 5:30 p.m. at the Grappone Center in Concord. Tickets are $75 per person and support the Council’s work of connecting people with ideas. Purchase tickets here.
