The Mother of Thanksgiving

Listen to Word of Mouth on New Hampshire Public Radio this Saturday, November 18th at 11:00 a.m. and learn how a Newport woman is known for being the mother of Thanksgiving.

NHPR’s Virgina Prescott traveled to the Richards Free Library last week and interviewed Mary Lou McGuire, archivist, and Sandy Sonnichsen, volunteer archivist, about the life of Sarah Josepha Hale and her campaign to create a national day of thanksgiving.

NHPR broadcasts Word of Mouth on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. and rebroadcasts the show on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m.
