Volunteers from every shift gathered at our Patio last night to enjoy each other’s company, and the lovely long twilight. We toasted another year of service to our Newton community, and said “see you in September” to those who leave for the summer.
Monday evening the Waban Library Center was the scene of a very successful and exciting author talk by celebrated novelist, Allegra Goodman. Fifty five people were treated to a lively discussion of her writing style and popular books. Her current book, “The Chalk Artist,” is available at the WLC and is hugely entertaining.
Best known for “Kaaterskill Falls,” Cambridge author Allegra Goodman’s most recent novel, “The Chalk Artist,” garnered very high praise nationally. She will be joining us on May 7th to speak to us about her latest work and the process by which she creates these amazing stories. Enjoy refreshments, mingle with the author, and have the opportunity to buy her book.
