Tickets can be purchased ahead of time or at the door. We hope to see you there!

We are pleased to welcome artist Susan Goulet, whose work is on display in the library during the month of April. Susan Goulet is a self-taught artist based in Western Massachusetts. Inspired by her love of classic films, her work is a vibrant and whimsical celebration of 20th century American pop-culture. Susan’s work has appeared in several books and CD liner notes. Her portrait of Princess Diana was chosen to grace the cover of the 2007 coffee-table book Diana in Art. We know you will enjoy seeing her work starting on April 1!
