Where possible we offer links for you to buy books. Our goal here is not to review, but to keep you posted on the latest, and sometimes little known publications.

  • Poetry

  • Film

    FilmNew Hampshire ain’t Hollywood. It’s better. But we inspire more movies than are made here. Even films written about NH are often shot in Canada or elsewhere. All the same, there are stories to tell, tales of UFOs, black history, murder, sea adventures and quiet simple folk. We span the gap from Peyton Place to On Golden Pond. This web area is dedicated to films about us, by us, or loosely connected to NH and the nearby coast. It is a work in progress. Click for local movies NOW PLAYING or get info from our MOVIE DATA page.

  • Gallery

    GallerySeacoastNH is always looking for evocative images of our region and beyond. This is where we put them. Each gallery showcases the work of a single artist or project. Each has a theme. Each draws us in for some reason and captures a little of the diversity that makes our region unique. Come on in. Learn about the artists and, if you need creative work, contact them. Tell them we sent you.
