The historic eighteenth-century Strafford Town House will again host a provocative reading and discussion series in Strafford, Vermont, on four August evenings. This summer’s Town House Forum series will feature poets, fiction writers, and cartoonists, and each presentation will be followed by conversations with the audience. Readings will begin at 7:00 PM. Everyone is invited to pack a picnic and come early to have supper on the Strafford Common with the authors, whose books will be offered for sale by the Norwich Book Store. While there is no charge for admission, donations will be welcomed at the door, to benefit the new books fund of the Morrill Memorial and Harris Library.
