Alice Plouchard Stelzer Women's History Month Guest
West Dennis Library welcomed Alice Ploucard Stelzer, author of Female Adventurers: the women who helped colonize Massachusetts and Connecticut, to kick off Women's History Month and she did just that to a full house that sat rapt as she - dressed in the style of the period - educated us on the conditions, life styles, limitations and contributions of the women who came to New England in the 1630s and helped lay the foundation for the communites we live in today. Alice shared her own story as well, graciously took questions and stayed to informally chat with the guests as she signed books at the end of her presentation. Thank you Alice for a great program and a very enjoyable afternoon.
Richard Gifford recently visited the library to speak about his new book MacMillan Wharf, a mystery set in Provincetown. In addition to sharing the background of the book, Richard also shared his considerable knowledge of the Cape and his unique publishing experience with Amazon. Those attending were entertained by his readings, his enthusiasm for all things Cape Cod and his sense of humor. Well done Richard!
Marian Walsh recently shared her new book RUN and the inspiration behind it. "A personal guide for running for public offfice", Run- as our director Tiffany Turner suggests - is also a personal guide to achieving lifetime goals of any nature. Marian was a senator in Massachusetts and never lost an election during her tenure. Now a motivational speaker, Marian has a message for everyone...whether you are interested in running for offfice or simply interested in making a difference!
Anne Speyer, Library Director at South Dennis Library, recently spoke on Book Banning in the U.S. but also gave the historical background in the world. Entertaining, informative and often disturbing - this was a very well received and attended presentation. Thanks Anne!
