NONFICTION BOOK DISCUSSION - On Mon., May 20, at 7:00 p.m., the Hampstead Public Library’s Nonfiction Book Group will discuss, “Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour” by Lynne Olson. This behind-the-scenes story of how the United States forged its WWII alliance with Britain is told from the perspective of three key Americans in London: Edward R. Murrow, head of CBS radio’s European bureau; Averell Harriman, who was sent to London by FDR to oversee Lend-Lease aid; and John Gilbert Winant, who was appointed American ambassador in 1941.
STUDENT ART EXHIBIT - Student art from the Hampstead Middle School now adorns the walls of the 2nd floor meeting room in the Hampstead Public Library. There are also 3-dimensional pieces in the glass display cases on the first and second floor. Come see the colorful and imaginative work of these students. The exhibit will be at the library through June 19.
