Easton Public Library Summer Programs for Adults

The Easton Public Library is offering something for everyone this July, with three unique programs for adults. On Tuesday, July 17th, at 7:00 p.m., local authors Elise Broach, Dan Slater and Cindy Shortt will discuss their writing and their books as part of The Great American Read. Crafting instructor Joni Kollar will be back on Monday, July 23rd at 10:30 a.m. with her Beachcombing Craft workshop, where she will demonstrate how to make a decorative fish using driftwood, shells, and other beach treasures. The instructor will bring a variety of materials, but feel free to bring some of your own beach finds if you wish. Please bring a hammer and a hot glue gun (if you have one).  This program is open to adults and older teens.

On Monday, July 30th at 7:00 p.m., Easton native James Wayne and his partner Christine Forgione will discuss the culture, customs and history of Swaziland and what it is like to serve in the Peace Corps in the 21st century. They will touch on the cultural festivals like The Reed Dance (umhlanga) and the First Fruit Ceremony (incwala) as well as weddings and day to day culture. They will also try to debunk myths and stereotypes of the Peace Corps and Africa.

Registration is required for each of these programs. To register, please use the Library’s Online Event Calendar, or contact Lynn Zaffino at 203-261-0134, or via email at lzaffino@eastonlibrary.org.
