Tuesday, December 1st, 3pm
Book Discussion Group - The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead.
Facilitated by Windsor Resident Janet Farley. Per the NYT review, Whitehead, "applies a master storyteller’s muscle not just to excavating a grievous past but to examining the process by which Americans undermine, distort, hide or “neatly erase” the stories he is driven to tell." We will be seated 6' apart outside if the day is warm enough. Maybe with a campfire if we're really lucky. Otherwise, we'll use Zoom. Please call the library at 674-2556 or come by to get a copy of the book.
 
Monday, December 21st, 7pm. Holiday Music, Poetry and Storytelling Open Mic
Are you a musician, poet, or storyteller? Or would you like to watch others perform? Please come and perform/share a Christmas classic or your own creation. Or just come to watch, listen, and be entertained. Pour yourself a hot chocolate, , settle in a comfortable chair and join us! Also, the Zoom settings have now been adjusted for (hopefully) optimal musical output.
