Wesleyan Student Musicians Perform at Russell Library Saturday April 14!

A student-run chamber group at Wesleyan University with a passion for string instruments and classical music will be playing a selection from their repertoire in the lobby of the Russell Library beginning at 10:15am Saturday April 14th.

They hope to bring people together through music. The students are: 

Kate Luo: 1st violin
Henry Lin-David: 2nd violin
Julia Adler: viola
Camille De Beus: viola
Dani Smotrich-Barr: cello
Kimberly Tsiang: cello
Anna Zags: cello

Come and enjoy some classical music this Saturday!

At the same time, the Friends Book Sale will be going on in the Children's Activity Room, from 10:00am - 2:00pm. 

The staircase leading into our Main Reading Room shows a
projection of one of the stained glass windows.
Authors 06457! is also featured in the lobby of Russell Library from 11:00am - 1:00pm. Local authors Sara Ann Hofferd and Steve Liskow are the authors this month. 

Sara Ann Hofferd is currently working on a series of alphabet books that enhances the basic ABC book. Her featured book, Alphabet Sketch, is a motivational tool for your little one to search for the alphabet throughout your home. Initially created for friends and family to illustrate at baby showers or gatherings, Alphabet Sketch has grown to an audience of children under 7 as well. This way, it is personalized and broadens vocabulary by exploration.

Steve Liskow is an award-winning author who also teaches writing and serves as a mentor and panelist for Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. His novels, many set in Connecticut, deal with issues such as a shooting in a public school, and teen drug abuse.

A Tour of the Russell Library will begin in the lobby at noon and take participants into some of the "hidden secrets" of the library.
