Anyone who can possible attend, do yourself a favor and do so. You will
have a most wonderful evening. Bangor High School and the Bangor Public
Library collaborated together in April to hold Richard Blanco events at the
high school during the day and then at the public library in the evening.
It was truly memorable. Don't miss him!

Thank you,
