The Albert Wisner Public Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick, will present award winning poet Lauri Byro on Tues., Oct. 24 at 6:30 p.m. Lauri will read from her new volume of poetry entitled, “Bloomsberries.” The poems were inspired by the Bloomsbury Set, a group of influential writers, philosophers and artists active in the early 20th century.
The Bloomsbury Set continues to fascinate decades after they used to gather in smart houses in London for sparkling conversation. The most prominent members included: Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E.M. Forester, and Lytton Strachey. Refreshments will be served and a book signing will follow the discussion, with copies available for purchase. To register, call the Library at 986-1047, ext. 3 or visit www.albertwisnerlibrary.org.
