ATKINSON —Are you sad that summer is over? You can gather with other book lovers to discuss The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alocott by Kelly O’Connor McNees to see if there is a connection with either the book or the participants. The evening book discussion crowd gathers on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:00 p.m. to share their thoughts on a chosen book.

Imagine a love affair that would threaten Louisa's writing career and inspire the story of Jo and Laurie in Little Women. Stuck in small-town New Hampshire in 1855, Louisa finds herself torn between a love affair that takes her by surprise and her dream of independence as a writer in Boston. This book will be the topic at hand on Tues., October 16, at 6:00 p.m. Come pick up a copy of the book and get started.  You don’t need to have finished reading the book to attend. Listeners are welcome.

Create and Express (crafts for kids) has two unique classes coming up to appeal to two different developmental age groupings. On Thurs., October 18, for the younger set, you will be decorating face masks with glitter, glitter glue, and rhinestones. You can make your mask into a cat or a princess. It’s time to just be creative and have fun! This class will meet at 4:00 p.m. for approximately one hour and is slated for grades 2-5. Please register online or by giving us a call. Seats are limited.

Masquerade Masks are for the older t/ween crowd. Join us in getting in the Halloween spirit! Make a masquerade mask with puff paint and tulle. This class is offered for t/weens in grades 5-12. These special masks will make a great addition to any costume.   Registration is required since there is limited seating.  This creative bunch will meet on Thurs., October 25, at 6:00 p.m.  We have given ninety-minutes to this project just in case it runs longer than the typical hour.  Register early to avoid disappointment.
