Richard Russo is coming to Chelmsford!

   Tuesday, October 30th, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Richard RussoOn Monday, Nov. 5th, Richard Russo will be reading from his new book, Bridge of Sighs, and answering questions about his other books, including Chelmsford's One Book, Empire Falls. Following the reading and Q&A session, Richard Russo will be available for book signings.

Due to an overwhelming response, there has been a change in venue and time!

The program will now be held at the McCarthy Middle School auditorium, at 7:30pm. The auditorium holds almost 600 people, so seating shouldn't be an issue, even if you don't already have a ticket.

For more information, see our Richard Russo web page, or contact the Library.
