Celebrate Winterfest with "A Taste of the South"
During Chelmsford's 2008 Winterfest, the Library will be holding "A Taste of the South" as part of our One Book Chelmsford program.
A Taste of the South will feature a combination of southern foods and literature, in keeping with the setting of this year's One Book, To Kill a Mockingbird.
The event will be on Friday, Feb. 1st (the first day of Winterfest), at 7:00pm in the Library. Area restaurants are providing foods of the South for everyone to try, and the Circulation Desk will be converted into a cash bar of beer and wine. Copies of To Kill a Mockingbird will be available, and Library staff have also pulled together a large list of other books either set in the South or written by a Southern author.
Some of the authors featured will be Maya Angelou, Truman Capote, Pat Conroy, Ralph Ellison, William Faulkner, Fannie Flagg, Kaye Gibbons, Alex Haley, Margaret Mitchell, John Kennedy Toole, Mark Twain, Alice Walker, Tennessee Willams, and Richard Wright.
Tickets are $15, available in advance or at the door. Please visit our A Taste of the South webpage for more information, or call the library at 978-256-5521 to purchase yours.
