Fireside Stories With Tom Lee

Friday, March 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Children's Library

Tom Lee’s extensive collection of stories passed down through the ages has been gathered through years of research. Some are quick and some take time to tell, but all of them delight and engage. Tom’s enthusiasm for his stories keeps the audience enchanted.

This special storytelling series, for families with children ages 5 and up, has been made possible thanks to a generous donation from Barbara Kennedy Shortell, a longtime Library supporter and former English teacher in Wallingford. The programs are free and take place in front of the fireplace in the Children’s Library.

Manga Drawing Workshop

Wednesday, March 31st at 6:00 p.m. in the Collins Room

Learn or hone your Manga skills by producing a very creative wheel of characterizations that will create dozens of character looks. And here’s more fun – one of the characters will be an interpretation of you! We’ll discuss drawing of eyes, hair, head shapes, clothing and colors that give Manga its unique style. If you do lots of Manga already, you will create a more complicated wheel with more definitive Manga style. The workshop will be taught by Bruce & Joanne Hunter of the Art Spot in Ridgefield, CT. Open to all teens in grades 6-12.

Please register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.
