Party at the Library!

The economy still stinks, everything costs a jillion dollars and the holiday season is vacuuming out your pockets, so 'tis the season to think about entertaining yourself gratis. The Ferguson Library (Bedford and Broad) has some pretty fabulous things that just may fit the bill. For example:

- On Tuesday, December 7th at 6:30pm, you can attend the Road to Recovery. It's an informational session on how to invest in this crazy market. You'll get expert tips and an opportunity to speak to those in the know. Head up to the 3rd floor to join in or call 203.351.8221 for more info.

- On Sunday, December 12th at 2pm, meet Nadia Kalman, the author of The Cosmopolitans. It's a comic novel set in our backyard chronicling the life of a Russian family making a home in suburban CT. Ms. Kalman attended Yale, Columbia and (most interestingly of all) Stamford High School. She'll be signing and selling this, her debut novel. For more info, call 203.351.8228.

- On Saturday, December 18th at 2pm, learn about Classic Cocktails from Jonathan Pogash, the "Cocktail Guru." You'll take away a history lesson, practical tips and seasonal samples. For more info, call 203.351.8239.

- Tuesday nights (November 30th and December 28th are the next dates) there are book groups leading discussions about contemporary authors. The group is moderated by Westhill High School English teacher Patricia Brown. The event is underway at 7pm and books include "Day After Night" (Nov 30th) and "Juliet, Naked" (Dec 28).
