Night of a 1,000 Stars

Thursday, April 23 @ 7:00 P.M.
Simsbury Library Program Room

     Join us for Night of 1,000 Stars-- a great community event!

Each of our "stars" (a local Simsbury celebrity) will read a passage from a favorite work. "Past stars have read from fiction, poetry, plays, speeches, biographies and children's books - anything that moved them to laughter, tears, or motivated them to share", says event chair Nancy Bugbee 


This year's event will be hosted by Chris Kelly, a Simsbury star himself. The roster includes Terry Deitz from the TV show Survivor, educator Doug Cramphin,  police sergeant John Durkin, nurse Allison Heermance,  middle schooler Bronwyn Mogck, jeweler Bill Selig, restaurateur Doug Spencer, Jack Voorvart, the library's new teen librarian Sara Ray, and reference librarian Joan Nagy.  The "What's on Tap?" quartet will perform a few songs to kick off the event. Desserts and coffee will be provided.


The program is free of charge, but seating is limited. Click here to reserve your seat(s), stop by at the Library Reference Desk, or call (860) 658-7663. Drop-ins are welcome, space permitting.
