The library hosted several well-attended events in March. Early in the month, Candace Stover led a creative writing workshop in which participants thought about their relationships with their grandmothers. Attendees raved about this experience and the work that emerged from the workshop.
Our artist reception for the Grandmother-themed Women's History Month exhibit was cancelled due to the weather, but several artists talked about their works at an Historical Society event entitled "Memories of Grandmothers" on Monday, March 24. Kathie Pratt, Amanda Crafts, and Linda Fernandez, in particular, recounted memories and shared their art.
Bestselling author Christina Baker Kline discussed her journey this past year as her novel, Orphan Train, has risen to wide acclaim. Kline signed copies of her novel at the March 20th event and talked about her next project, entitled Christina's World.
Kindergarteners from the Tremont School visited the library with their teachers on March 27 and learned about the history and resources of BHML. They viewed the exhibit of art about grandmothers, listened to a story about a grandmother, and thought about their own grandmothers as they drew with pastels.
