When she slips on a walk and is aided by a penniless young writer, she invites him to dine at the Claremont and plays along when her dining mates assume he's her grandson. A friendship develops giving her a companion with whom she can talk about memories and poetry and giving him ideas and support for his writing. But what of her actual family?  NR; 1hour, 48min.

    Barry Wiesenfeld will review and expand upon the concepts explored in Part I of How Music Works.  He will discuss the components of music and how they work, as well as chords, melody and harmony.  No knowledge of music necessary - only a desire to learn!  Attendance at all four classes is strongly encouraged.

    Come meet over 50 prominent and beloved authors and illustrators of children's books and celebrate children's literacy.  Authors and illustrators will gather on Railroad Avenue to autograph and inscribe their books (which will be available for purchase), chat with readers and share their love of the written word.  Admission is free and open to the public. 

    From 1:00-2:30 on Railroad Green, the beloved Uncle Brothers Band will perform a free children's concert.  Feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chair!  (There is no seating and the concert space is open-air.) There will also be free craft activities for children.  All are welcome.

    Railroad Green is surrounded by family-friendly restaurants and cafes, and is close to a park with a playground.  Shopping opportunities abound on Railroad Avenue and adjacent Main Street; Warwick's multiple apple orchards and farm markets are within a short drive of Railroad Avenue.

    Note:  in the event of rain, the Festival will be held indoors at Park Avenue School - 10 Park Avenue, Warwick (same hours - 11:00am-4:00pm).  The concert will still be held at 1:00pm. 

    The Warwick Children's Book Festival raises funds to support the programs and services of Albert Wisner Public Library.  Sponsors are longtime Library benefactors Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes and the Village of Warwick.  The Festival's partner and bookseller is Ye Olde Warwick Book Shoppe.
