The Wareham Library Foundation would like to thank everyone involved in this year's Annual author Series. It was a great success!

The evening began with a free discussion and book signing at the Wareham Free Library to a packed meeting room! Mr. Kidder delighted the audience with his behind-the-scenes tales of writing his books. Trekking around the world at times, to follow the subjects of his nonfiction publications, his stories kept the audience both enthralled and entertained!

Then on to the Marriott Suites at Rosebrook for the second portion of the evening. Diners enjoyed a delicious meal while chatting with other library lovers/supporters.

Tracy Kidder was then interviewed by local NPR personality, Naomi Arenberg. The question and answer period focused more broadly on the writing process and the author's use of prose in nonfiction. On the subject of libraries, Mr. Kidder declared that "People desperately need libraries. They're such a valuable part of their communities." That comment prompted a loud and heartfelt applause!

As Mr. Kidder was leaving the event, he was given a basket filled with "cranberry goodies and items" to remember his visit to bog country.


Our library is supported by some wonderful people, and that includes the musicians from Music from Land's End Wareham. Each year, this talented group of professional musicians present a Family Concert at the Main Library, with entrance donations going to support the library.

This summer, the Family Concert will take place on Thursday, July 26 at 4 pm. This family-friendly concert encourages children and youth to attend along with anyone who loves beautiful music. Artistic Director Ariadne Daskalakis explains the pieces for better understanding and enjoyment!

The program includes works for string quartet: a "collage combo" of the American Composers George Gershwin, Charles Ives and Ruth Crawford Seeger, a masterpiece Haydn quartet and the unparalleled "American" Quartet by Dvorak.

The Wareham Library Foundation thanks Ariadne and her exquisite team for supporting the Wareham Free Library!
