LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

    

  Happy New Year! I hope everyone was able to get lots of reading time in during vacation! Let’s resolve to promote a Flight School of literacy with our students, gathering with friends for inspiration with the sweet and talented Lita Judge. Invite a colleague to join us!

 Along with salad, dessert, coffee/tea, our delicious menu includes:

Bruschetta Chicken: Grilled chicken breast smothered with chopped tomatoes, onions, garlic, fresh basil & melted asiago cheese. Finished with a balsamic reduction.

Vegetarian Pad Thai: Fresh vegetables and tofu stir fried in homemade Pad Thai sauce then tossed with rice noodles and finished with scallions, cilantro, and peanuts.

 Our presenter, Lita Judge, will engage us with How to Excite Creative Thinking and Writing Through Revision.  She is the author and illustrator of 24 fiction and nonfiction books. She will have her brand new book for us, the sequel to Flight School, Penguin Flies Home!

 Berkshire Reading Council is in its 54th year serving Berkshire County. In November, we got to Track Fairies with author Ammi-Joan Paquette! Congratulations to Meaghan, Marcia & Stephanie, winners of our Fall raffle!
