Are you looking for scholarship money? Joan Ryan will present “Scholarship Matters” on Tues., January 14, at 6:30 p.m. Finding and securing college scholarship funding is important and Joan has turned her expertise into a foolproof system to defray the high cost of her daughter’s education. Inspired by her life experiences, as well as those of other parents, Joan has created a practical tool for parents feeling “at sea” with the overwhelming process of college admissions.
The Sandown Library will be closed on Mon., January 20 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Sandown Library will host Sandown resident Melissa Gould (writing under her pen name Anne Kelsey), author of ‘Deadly Intruder’ on Wed., January 22 at 6:30 p.m. She will talk about two memoirs written by her family members. One crossed the country via wagon train, the other explored Central America by cutting through the jungle with a machete to find land for the United Fruit Co. She will also discuss the genesis of the book, how and why she uses a pen name, and will demonstrate an unusual weapon from the book called an Emei Piercer.
