November 2008


A while back, I knew a guy who was a cartoonist. He had won a Xeric grant to self-publish his comic book shortly before I met him. Peter Laird, one of the creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, put some of his millions into a foundation to give grants to aspiring cartoonists, and my friend used his award to pay for the printing of his book.

Event Notebook
November 2008


When I was in my early 20s, I had the opportunity to pal around with a 76-year-old. He was a retired steamfitter who started in the profession as a teen. He was also a curious and insightful man who had cultivated his intellect through extensive reading. He had experienced a lot in his life, and he had many compelling stories to tell.

Barrington Library will host a flu clinic on Thursday, November 6th from 930 to Noon, upstairs in the gallery room.  Most people with health coverage can expect to get the shot for free, but there are some exceptions.  You must have your insurance card with you. There is a charge for people without health insurance. You must be 19 years or older to get these flu shots. Although we will not do pre-registration this year, you can get the registration form early at the library registration desk.
