Gather around the fire for fantastical tales. The Bill Memorial Library, 240 Monument Street in the historic village of Groton Bank, invites you to join us for Stories Around the Fire on Thursday, October 8, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Enjoy a dramatic reading by local author, actress, and musician C.S.E. Cooney. She will read from her recently published story collection, Bone Swans. C.S.E. Cooney is a Rhode Island writer who lives across the street from a Victorian Strolling Park. She is the author of How To Flirt in Faerieland and Other Wild Rhymes and Jack o' the Hills. She won the 2011 Rhysling Award for her story-poem "The Sea King's Second Bride." Publisher's Weekly gave her first short fiction collection Bone Swans a starred review, calling it "brilliantly executed...delicious stew of science fiction, horror, and fantasy, marked by unforgettable characters who plumb the depths of pathos and triumph." Call to reserve your spot around the fire! The content of the stories will be suitable for a PG-13 audience.
