“I started out with the premise that history is nothing but a series of narratives created by individuals who are fallible, biased and, quite frankly, have bad memories. And there is so much that falls in the gaps, and there is so much that has just been silenced,” said author Maaza Mengiste of the project that led to her most recent novel, “The Shadow King.”
LEBANON — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg held a town-hall style forum at Lebanon Middle School on Saturday as part of a multi-stop bus tour of New Hampshire.

With over $2.2 billion raised to date, the College’s “The Call to Lead” capital campaign has been “unprecedented,” according to alumni council member Julie Levenson ’84.

The first time I was exposed to Korean films was a glorious experience. I don’t remember how old I was, but it was probably in high school when a buddy and I watched “Oldboy” for the first time. I was blown away. I had forgotten just how wide the spectrum of emotions a movie can make you feel was, and it felt like I was falling in love with movies all over again.

Known as a master violinist, Zukerman’s impressive career has spanned five decades. Joining him onstage will be acclaimed pianist Angela Cheng.

I haven’t seen nearly as many films throughout 2019 as I might have liked, but what I have seen has left me largely uninspired — nothing awful, but also nothing to get me all that excited. The sole exception so far has been Lulu Wang’s phenomenal “The Farewell.” So color me both astonished and elated that “Doctor Sleep” has become only the second film this year that I really, truly love.
In 2014, Youtuber Gary Turk released a video entitled “Look Up,” a spoken word film intended for the technological generation. The video quickly went viral due to a hard-hitting message about technology and loss of human connection, but has since waned in importance. Dartmouth has recently had its own “Look Up” campaign, founded by Susan Reynolds, a Dartmouth ’84. Deemed “LookUp.Live,” the campaign has a goal of “creating innovative solutions for tech-life balance.”
Just by looking at a charter school building in Manhattan, one can tell that they are not like New York City’s traditional public schools. Charter schools are funded with public money but privately run. The money that would support a student in a public school is instead used to support a charter school if they choose to attend one. In New York City, the 10 percent of students who attend charter schools are more proficient in math, learn to read at grade level much faster and graduate at higher rates than their public-school peers.

Breaking a 32-year drought of season-opener road wins and ending an opponent’s 26-game home win streak is one way to start the season. With its first season-opening road win in more than three decades, the Big Green men’s basketball team came out on top against the University of Buffalo on Friday, 68-63. While a 17-point lead fell to one in the second half, the Big Green kept its composure to hold the advantage against the Bulls.

In its 17 games dating back to the start of last season, No. 13 Dartmouth football is 16-1. No. 9 Princeton University football is 17-0. The one loss separating these two teams? The Tigers’ 14-9 defeat over the Big Green last November.
