On Sunday July 12th, a crowd of more than 250 gathered in the library garden for an event honoring author David McCullough. Mr. McCullough read "Voyagers", a chapter from his unfinished book on Americans in Paris.
In his opening remarks, Mr. McCullough commented on the importance of libraries, and also noted that this was the first time he has performed a public reading of an unfinished book.
At the reception following the reading, attendees shared homemade cookies and lemonade provided by the Friends of the Library, who sponsored this event. Additional coverage of this event appears in a front page article of the July 14th edition of the Vineyard Gazette.
