At the Wadhams Free Library, the Wednesdays in Wadhams fall lecture series kicks off at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28 with a talk by David Reuther, "Everything I Know about Publishing I Learned from My Authors." David, who lives in Willsboro, worked for three decades as a children's book publisher, collaborating with famous authors such as Madeleine L'Engle and Jules Feiffer. He is immensely knowledgeable, and his take on the ins and outs of the publishing world promises to be fascinating. It's free, and David will take your questions.
And a new poetry group will meet in the Westport Library on Thursday, October 29 at 5:30. Admission is free, and students and adults who are interested in developing skills in poetry or songwriting are invited to come. If you have a poem that you have written, please bring along five to 10 copies. If you don't have a poem, perhaps you can bring a song or poem that you have enjoyed. Call Judith Moore at 962-8964 between 4 and 6 p.m. for more information.
