Adult Fiction Book Club

Join us as we discuss in our virtual Adult Fiction Book Club: “Ask Again, Yes” by Mary Beth Keane. How much can a family forgive? Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, rookie NYPD cops, are neighbors in the suburbs. What happens behind closed doors in both houses–the loneliness of Francis’s wife, Lena, and the instability of Brian’s wife, Anne, sets the stage for the explosive events to come.

Drama Reading Group at the Woodbury Public Library

If you love to read or enjoy being part of a book club, you will relish participating in the new Drama Reading Group at the Woodbury Public Library. The group will consider the characters, themes and plots of each play and then examine how the work responds to a specific historical event. The monthly sessions will be facilitated by theatre scholar, Dr. Kathryn Farley.  Please join us once a month to participate in a dynamic discussion of famous plays.  The first play read and discussed will be The Crucible by Arthur Miller  (1953).  Plays are available to check out at the library.

Kathryn T. Farley, Ph.D obtained a doctorate in Performance Studies from Northwestern University in 2007, writing a dissertation that investigated the use of digital media tools in performing arts curriculums. At Northwestern, she taught undergraduate courses exploring contemporary drama and the integration of technology into live theatre. Prior to moving to Connecticut with her husband, Dr. Richard Lipton, last fall, Kathryn served a lecturer in digital arts at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. She serves as a member of the board of directors of the Community Theatre at Woodbury.
