...serving up your daily dish.
There's always lots of fun for the literati in Baristaville, but tonight there's an embarrassment of riches:
Tonight, in honor of the 300th birthday of Ben Franklin, Glen Ridge Friends of the Library has two direct descendants of Franklin, including Mark Skousen, editor of a new Franklin autobiography. Birthday cake will be served in Franklin's honor. Business meeting at 7:30 pm, Franklin lecture at 8 pm in the Glen Ridge High School cafeteria. And at Watchung Booksellers, Anne Burt, editor of the recently-published collection of step-parent essays, "Your Father Married My Mother," will read from her book, along with essayists Alice Elliott Dark and Stephanie Stokes Oliver.
