WOLFEBORO -- The Wolfeboro Public Library is presenting a craft program on Wednesday, July 23 from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and again on Wednesday, August 20, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Participants will be creating postcards using washi tape. Washi tape is a slightly-transparent, decorative masking tape from Japan. It is growing in popularity throughout the crafting world for its graphic strength, charm, and ease of use. The Library will supply tape for participants to use in the creation of a one-of-a-kind postcard to be sent to a lucky recipient of their choice. Each session stands alone; participants do not have to attend the first to come to the second, and do not have to attend both. This craft is suitable for ages 8 to adult, although advanced younger crafters with parental assistance may be able create their own mini postal masterpiece. Pre-enrollment is not necessary.
The Wolfeboro Public Library offers regular craft programs for the community. Follow the library on Facebook or check their webpage at www.wolfeborolibrary.org. For more information, call Sue Riddle during regular hours at 569-2428. The Library is open Monday-Thursday 9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

CENTER HARBOR — Novelist and art historian David Adams Cleveland will be at Bayswater Book Store on Friday, August 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to sign copies of his second novel, ''Love's Attraction.''
The romantic novel, described by reviewer Evan Tomas as "an intelligent reader's page turner," opens with a beginning in Venice and then moves to Massachusetts, and mostly to the city of Lowell, and traces the attempts of Michael Collins, who was a scholarship student at an elite New England prep schoo in the 1960s, to unravel the apparent suicide of his one-time love interest Sandra Palmer, a member of a wealthy family with deep ties to the art world of Venice.
On the run from a political scandal, Collins hides out in Concord, posing as a Thoreau scholar. He becomes obsessed with Sandra's sudden, gruesome death and the possibility that he may be a father. He discovers a connection between his grandfather, an Italian gravestone sculptor, and Sandra's grandfather, a famous artist. Then Sandra shows up in town—or is it her twin sister, Angela?
Moving between Concord and Venice, Michael chases Angela (or Sandra?) and uncovers the secretive history of the twins' grandmother, Sandra, and Angela.
Celeveland's first novel, a Gemlike Flame, drew wide praise for its evocation of Venice and the hunt for a lost masterpiece by Raphael. His most recent art history book, A History of American Tonalism, won the Silver Medal in Art History in the Book of the Year Awards, 2010; and Outstanding Academic Title 2011 from the American Library Association; it was the best selling American art history book in 2011 and 2012.
He and his wife live in New York where he works as an art advisor with his son, Carter Cleveland, founder of Artsy.net, the new internet site making all the world's art accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
