Friday, October 13
Soups (Friday Food Affair), 5:00 pm
Stories, 7:00 pm

Come by for a free dinner of soup (a variety, including veggie, will be available), bread, and dessert and stay for the storytelling program. Bill Schubart and Bill Torrey–two veteran storytellers and authors–will regale us with stories of their lives in Vermont and their perceptions of change for better and for worse.  They will also share a bit about their books and the characters that inhabit them.

Please join us in the library’s Community Room for a night of stories and good eats! (And stop by the rummage sale at the Richmond Congregational Church beginning at 9:30 am on Friday.)
