MANCHESTER - Join acclaimed Vermont storyteller Tom Weakley on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. at the Mark Skinner Library for a talk, "The Storyteller Puts It in Writing." Weakley will read from his new book, "The Stories" to illustrate the range of theme, structure and point-of-view from story to story. He will talk about the difference between oral and literary stories as well as his enjoyment of jocular tales. Weakley will answer any questions from the audience about the storytelling creative process.

In a career that spanned three decades, crossed continents and earned national awards, Vermont storyteller Tom Weakley entertained adult and family audiences throughout New England and beyond. His down-home, poignant and often hilarious stories celebrate the wit, wisdom, history and foibles of his family and Vermont neighbors.

Weakely will autograph personal copies of books or CDs brought by audience members and copies will be available for purchase. Fifteen percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Mark Skinner Library.

The library is located at 48 West Road, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 802-362-2607 or
