One highlight of the program was Dan's poem about the Library. Since his March 8th reading he had revised this poem, and printed an illustrated broadside with the text; audience members could obtain a copy for a modest donation (to the Library). This poem is still a work-in-progress, he said.

Also on the program was storyteller Megan Moore, who told a Native American tale of the Giant Beaver, the shape of which can still be seen along the Connecticut River at Mount Sugarloaf.
This event was hosted by the Friends. Connie Kennedy provided refreshments; Sandy Ward introduced Dan Shanahan at the beginning, and led a tour of the Library afterwards. During the tour Carla Bee found a comfortable chair with a good view of the park:
