Programs galore in August: Gluten-free living, Local filmmakers debut, and Music!

Monday, August 10 at 7pm: Yvonne Vissing, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology at Salem State University in Massachusetts, and author of “Going Gluten Free : A Guide to Healthy Living, Dining and Cooking” will speak at the Dover Public Library about living a gluten free life.

People curious about gluten, those who wonder if they have gluten intolerance, folks with celiac disease, or those who live with a gluten-sensitive loved one will hear some great information about gluten and its effect on our bodies. Dr. Vissing will have copies of her book available for purchase and will gladly sign copies.

In addition, a representative from Hannaford’s will be bringing a variety of gluten free snacks and products for audience members to sample. 

Tuesday August 11 at 7pm: Local filmmakers, the Dover Independent Players, will screen their new short film “Through a Glass, Darkly” at the Dover Public Library, followed by a Q&A session with cast and crew members. Produced locally and filmed in July, mainly at Hampton Beach, the film is about Julia, a fifteen year old, who while on vacation at the beach with her older sister, sells her soul to the devil for the magic of the boardwalk. The film is appropriate for teens and adults. Updates and behind the scenes videos and photos can be found at Facebook.com/TAGDfilm or on Instagram with the hashtag #TAGDfilm
The Dover Independent Players are a group of former Dover High School students who produce art, music, films, and theater productions. Dover Independent Players’ previous production, a one-act play called “Adopt a Sailor”, written by Charles Evered, premiered at the Dover High School in Spring 2013. It starred four students who are major cast or crew members on “Through a Glass, Darkly”. The film runs about 15 minutes.  Keep in mind when considering bringing younger members of the family that the “rating” would be PG-13.
Wednesday, August 12 at 7pm: Monica Nagle is a blues, jazz, and folk singer and a songwriter, poet, and fine artist from Buffalo, New York. She now calls Dover, New Hampshire home and will perform at the Dover Public Library.  Monica writes inspirational ballads and blues and will perform a carefully crafted mix of her own material and socially conscious standards. 

As a peace and justice activist, she has performed from Canada to California, up and down the east coast, and spent three years in Brazil which influenced her heart further toward advocacy and philanthropic endeavors. Her latest endeavor is a CD/book project entitled "If You Had Heard My Voice", a collection of poetry, art, lyrics, and prose meant to inspire and heal. She will have copies of her new book available for sale and will be happy to sign them. 

Monica is designer of the award winning "Art of Living" Program, an arts-centered prevention program that has helped many youth in New Hampshire to choose a drug-free life, while giving back to their communities. She is the former Director of Arts and Humanities for the New Hampshire YMCA and was chosen to participate in the NH Charitable Foundation's "It Takes a Community" Project, sponsored by The Ford Foundation.
