Linda Lisdestri will be the discussion leader for the Wednesday, January 27th Books Over Coffee at noon on Zoom. The event is free and open to the public. For further information call the Library at: 203.385.4162
The January 27th discussion will be on “One Day: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary 24 Hours in America” by Gene Weingarten.
On New Year’s Day 2013, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Gene Weingarten asked three strangers to, literally, pluck a day, month, and year from a hat. That day–chosen completely at random–turned out to be Sunday, December 28, 1986, by any conventional measure a most ordinary day. Weingarten spent the next six years proving that there is no such thing.
And don’t forget to mask up to raise money for our library!!!!
“We shall, everyone, be mask’d!” – William Shakespeare
Stratford Library supporter William Shakespeare urges all to wear a mask during the pandemic. The Library is currently offering patrons a special edition mask to celebrate its 125th anniversary (1896-2021).
