Newport, N.H. — The Richards Free Library, 58 N. Main Street, Newport, is celebrating National Poetry Month on April 24 at 7 p.m.. Bring your favorite poem to read or just come to listen. Everyone is invited. Refreshments will be provided.
At the Richards Free Library on April 28 (at 3:30 p.m.), Dr. Robert Scott will read and talk about his new book for children, Horatio’s Hometown Hero. The book was written in conjunction with Ambassador Joseph and Augusta Petrone as part of the Inspire Future New Hampshire Heroes program. Admission is free.
The book tells a simple story: To be a hero you do not have to be rich, powerful or beautiful, all you need is a giving heart that cares and shares with others. “Yes, we all can become a hero,” is the book’s motto.
