The Mariposa Museum and World Culture Center in Peterborough, NH is currently hosting the Groton Dunstable Regional School District’s and Pages for Peace Foundation’s “Big Book: Pages for Peace”.
In all of its 12’ high by 20’ wide glory, the Big Book was open to the local Veterans chapter for a special event, “Honoring Our Veterans and Their Contributions Toward Peace in our World” on November 11. The Mariposa Museum opened its doors to Veterans and guests to enjoy the book, the kiosk displaying digital images of each of the more than 1,000 pages of the book, and other awards and memorabilia recognizing the Big Book as well as to hear a profound presentation with moving words by retired fifth grade educator Annie Polaski; Hannah Tellier, a Bookmakers and Dreamers Club member whose brother died in service in Afghanistan in 2007; and US Army Veteran Dick Dunning, who was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for Valor for his service with the Special Forces in Vietnam.
The Mariposa Museum, located at 26 Main Street, Peterborough, NH and open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. will continue to be home to Big Book: Pages for Peace through the end of the year.
