On 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.

The first sessions will be an introduction to the topic, geared towards those who feel there's more they should be doing with their finances and assets, but don't know where or how to begin. The later sessions will build on the first and get into more details.
The first session, "Introduction to Financial Fitness," will be held on September 13th and then repeated on September 27th, for those who can't make the first date. The instructor is Rishi Sondhi (more about Rishi).
Also, there is a handout of finance and investing books, periodicals, and other resources in the Library: click to download [pdf, 128kb]

Also, information on other book groups at the library, as well as general book group resources, is available on our Book Groups Links page.

Everyone knows that part of the fictional world of the television show The Simpsons is based on Chelmsford, right? No?
Well then, come meet Lance Wilder, Chelmsford native and background designer for The Simpsons! He'll talk about how local landmarks, such as the Library, McCarthy Middle School, Zesty's Pizza and Skip's Restaurant, all found their way into the show, and what working on a major television show is like.
Lance was raised in Chelmsford, graduating from Chelmsford High School in 1986 and from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1990. He landed the job of background designer for The Simpsons during its 2nd season. Lance lives with his wife Maria and four children In California.
