Thursday night, December 15th, the Waban Library Center was proud to host an author talk by Providence author, Ann Hood.
Ann held 31 listeners captive by her fascinating account of how she was born to be a writer from her earliest years as an avid reader.
Her most current book, “The Book That Matters Most,” depicts a woman whose 25 year marriage has just fallen apart. Her husband has left her, and in her emotional dissaray she finds emotional and intellectual support in a book group.
Thursday night twenty two of our great group of volunteers toasted seven years of uninterrupted service to the greater Waban/Newton community!
How did we do this? Let me count the two key ways – by lifting a glass of champagne, and enjoying a sublime cake created for us by Russo’s, and by seven years of consistent work at the Waban Library Center.
We beheld the newly reorganized music listening room, and children’s area. We met up with fellow volunteers whom we only chance see at these festive occasions. We will look forward to another year of service, including the essential election on November 8th, when the WLC transforms into the polling station for our Wards.
