For Dose Readers And Friends

http://www.sec.state.ri.us/library/image/landmarks/theathenaeum.jpgWe’ve been asked to make sure that it’s known that this week’s salon, and events at the Athenaeum more generally, are open to Daily Dose readers, with free admission.

SALON – Series: So, What’s the Story?
Friday, 11/13, 5-7pm
Part Five: Candy Adriance on the long and winding road to a library in a Kenyan village.

Thirty years ago Adriance met a Kenyan woman whose life would intersect with hers in ways then unimagined. Now family members by marriage, both are among a growing group of adults and children in the U.S. and Kenya devoted to sustaining the Mwea Primary School in Thika, Kenya, a tiny rural village. Plans for a new school building will include a community library, the first in the village’s history.

Join us for a conversation about crossing cultures, creating opportunities, taking chances, dreaming big and small, and why the library is the center of the universe. More on the school: mweafund.org. For Athenaeum members and their guests.
