Author of the Month: Brendan Smith at Gilford Library January 23

GILFORD — On Thursday, January 23 the Gilford Public Library will host author and humorist Brendan Smith for a special presentation on Flatlanders and life in New Hampshire.

Born and raised in Long Island, Brendan moved to central New Hampshire in the 1980's. Over the next ten years, Brendan worked hard at adjusting to life in New Hampshire, with often hilarious results. Since 1995, Brendan has been recounting his humorous adventures weekly on the pages of The Weirs Times and Cocheco Times. His "F.O.O.L. (Flatlander's Observations on Life) in New Hampshire" column has proved to be both popular and prolific, as his writing continues today. The very best of his column was recently published into a book, The Flatlander Chronicles.

His presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room. This program is free and open to the public.
