Mark your calendars! The next two months the Friends of the Library will be sponsoring some not-to-miss free events! It starts this Monday, March 25th at 6:30 pm when Maureen Stanton will talk about her book, “Killer Stuff and Tons of Money: An Insider’s Look at the World of Flea Markets, Antiques & Collecting”. Yes, spring is here – and that means it’s time to cruise those flea markets! Find out how you can turn a profit from your weekend finds. After all, everyone could use a little extra cash.
On Monday, April 8th at 6:30 pm, we are proud to have the author of “Three Junes“, “The Whole World Over“, “I See You Everywhere“, and “The Widower’s Tale“. Get your book group and friends together to meet and hear Julia Glass!! A resident of Marblehead, Massachusetts, she is a past winner of the National Book Award for her debut novel, “Three Junes”. She has described her characters as being her “alter egos”, and her favorite word is “widdershins” – she is a fascinating person that you have to meet!
Two days later, on Wednesday, April 10th at 6:30 pm, Richard Howe and Chaim Rosenberg will be talking about their new book, “Legendary Locals of Lowell“. This is sure to be a fun evening! You may recognize some of these legendary locals – perhaps it will be a walk down memory lane! Either way, come and meet Richard Howe, a great friend of the Dracut Library!
Are you interested in the Whitey Bulger case? Sure, you can read the papers, but why not hear first hand from Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy, authors of “Whitey Bulger: America’s Most Wanted Gangster and the Manhunt That Brought Him to Justice”? Make plans now to be here Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:30 pm – their insights are sure to be a hit!
All events are sponsored by the Friends of Dracut Library. They are free and open to the public.
