The library will hold an author luncheon featuring writer and broadcaster John Walters on Saturday, May 21 from noon to 2:00 at Alumni Hall.
Walters is the author of Roads Less Traveled: Visionary New England Lives, published last year by Plaidswede Press. Roads Less Traveled is a collection of portraits of extraordinary New Englanders, from artists, actors, and musicians to scientists, crafters, and activists. One of those profiled is Haverhill's own Betty Johnson.
Walters is also well known as the former host of "The Front Porch" on New Hampshire Public Radio.
The luncheon will feature asparagus and spring mix salad with vinaigrette, cold poached salmon with fresh herb aioli, marinated mushrooms, and new potato salad, and for dessert, orange crepe with strawberries and rhubarb, and vanilla ice cream.
The luncheon is a fund-raiser for the library. Tickets are $35 apiece or $60 for a pair. Call the library to reserve your ticket.
