Join the Friends of the Central Library on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 starting at 2:00 p.m. in the library’s auditorium as they welcome special guest speaker Laurie Nienhaus.
Nienhaus, editor of the on-line, free monthly “Sweet Willa’s Review” will present “The Life and Loves of Edna St. Vincent Millay.” Millay was an icon of the 1920s jazz babies and the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for poetry. Interspersed throughout the presentation will be dramatic readings of Millay’s poetry.
While her love of history, tea, and Jane Eyre dates back to her childhood, the speaker’s passion for Victoriana, the Edwardian era, and vintage fashion was born during an extended visit to England with her grandmother when she was in her twenties.
The event is free and seating will be available on a first come, first serve basis. There is no advance registration required.
The Friends are a support organization for Manatee County’s Central Library. Monies raised by the Friends go toward programs and services that tax dollars alone cannot provide.
The Central Library is located at 1301 Barcarrota Boulevard West in downtown Bradenton, Florida. For more information, please call the library at 941.748-5555, ext 6305.
