January 28, 2010

Library staffer Jenny Tripp has lined up another terrific group of programs for our patrons in February. For a look at the full schedule of February events, check out our online calendar or the Adult Programs page on our website. Here are just a few of February’s lineup:

Navigating Through Market Volatility with Rob van Ostenbridge of Merrill Lynch.
Thursday, Feb. 4th, 7 -8 p.m.

This seminar explains market volatility, core principals of investing to cope with market uncertainty, and presents actionable investing strategies and solutions to help investors reposition their portfolios in anticipation of a future market recovery.

Essex And The Sea:  Sailing In Cuba with photojournalist Peter Swanson
Sunday, Feb. 7th, 4-5 p.m. at Essex Town Hall.

Just ninety miles south of the tip of Florida is an undiscovered boater’s paradise which is closed to Americans – restrictions that don’t apply to journalists. In his talk, Swanson will give an illustrated firsthand account of navigating these unspoiled coasts.

Women In Media with Janet Peckinpaugh
Thursday, Feb. 11th, 7 p.m.

Join us for a thoughtful conversation with this smart, savvy survivor of the rough-and-tumble world of broadcast journalism as she discusses her life in the media, sexism in network newsrooms, and the impact of the shift in the news world from information to “info-tainment”.
