---- — Children’s book author David Ira Rottenberg read from his picture book “Gwendolyn Goes Hollywood” at Memorial Hall Library last Friday while young dancers performed the story.

A mini-movement lesson also was offered to the children in the audience after the performance and Rottenberg signed copies of his book.

Upcoming Memorial Hall Library events include:

IRISH MUSIC — On Sunday, March 10 at 2 p.m., popular husband-and-wife Celtic team The Lindsays will present “a unique sound with traditional Irish roots, blending instruments, rhythms, and textures from other worlds, and creating a fusion of Irish ballads, traditional jigs and reels, and contemporary rock and folk-with an edge.”

GARDEN TALK — On Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m., landscape designer Kim Smith presents a stunning slideshow and lecture demonstrating how to create a welcoming haven for bees, birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Native plants and examples of organic and architectural features will be discussed based on their value to particular vertebrates and invertebrates. The event is sponsored by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library and the Village Garden Club of Andover.
