One Book, One Valley:
The libraries of the FarmingtonValley will read Girls of Tender Age by Mary-Ann Tirone Smith this spring. Each library will hold book discussions and other events in March and April. Our book discussion will be on March 22 with Professor Aimee Pozorski. The series will culminate with an author visit at the Avon Senior Center on April 24, 2007 at 7:00 pm.
