On Wednesday, November 29 at 7 PM, Brooks Memorial Library will host a presentation about conmen who made their fortunes and furthered their careers by coming to Brattleboro and working their magic art. Rolf Parker, a free-lance writer and local historian, will tell their stories and share tips and techniques for doing your own research and story-telling. Come learn how your work can become part of the Peoples, Places and the History of Words Project! It is funded by an NEH “Creating Humanities Communities” grant.

The following poets will share their works with us:
When we started iBrattleboro, we had some grand visions. In addition to wanting to provide a platform for local news, views, and opinions, we hoped that local writers would enjoy publishing their work to a large, local audience. It would be possible for any writer to have a regular place on the site, and build a following of regular readers, but also compile their collected works into a book if they so desired.
CELEBRATE LIFE: VIVA LA VIDA by Namaya reading on 22 September Friday 6 – 6:30 PM at Everyone’s Books.
Please join us as we welcome Author Elizabeth Minnich at a FREE event on Friday, September 8, at 4 pm in the Second Floor Meeting Room. She will introduce and open discussion abnout her new book, The Evil of Banality: The Life and Death Importance of Thinking.
The other day, while looking at books at Experienced Goods, I noticed two middle-aged women working their way around the room with a handheld device.
