---- — ATKINSON —Expand your knowledge about America’s most beloved artist on Tuesday, March 25, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. right at your local library! Local historian Gus Reusch will be presenting on the topic: “The Life and Times of Norman Rockwell.” Many Rockwell prints will be on display.

Mr. Reusch has a wealth of knowledge on various topics such as the early history of Haverhill, John Greenleaf Whittier, Robert Frost, and Norman Rockwell. Mr. Reusch has a rich history himself, including forty years of expanding the knowledge of students as a teacher in Haverhill. He was named curator of the Whittier Birthplace (Haverhill, MA) six years ago and currently gives tours to local citizens, as well as visitors from around the world. He also gives presentations throughout the Merrimack Valley and teaches Life-Long Learning classes at Northern Essex Community College.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library. Refreshments will be served.

Are you looking to begin your journey into the world of art? Have you been expressing yourself creatively for years? Regardless of your skill level, come visit “The Dabblers” on Tuesdays! “The Dabblers” are a painting and crafts group who are looking for like-minded artisans to join them in oil, acrylic or watercolor media on canvas, wood or paper. They are willing to help you get started or you can just bring in a project of your choice. This casual, friendly group meets every Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Just drop in and stay for all or part of the time allotted. No registration is necessary.
