Although the threat remains low in Massachusetts and there are no confirmed cases in Tewksbury we continue to monitor closely the emergence of the “coronavirus disease 2019” (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. In order to protect all of our visitors and in accordance with the Governor’s State of Emergency, the Town Manager has cancelled all events and uses of the meeting rooms (First Floor and Trustees’ Room on the Second Floor) at the Tewksbury Public Library until further notice. The library is open for all other business and is happy to serve your research, reading, viewing and informational needs.

Local author A.G. Reidy will talk about her new collection of stories, "Dinkweed," and her own experiences of growing up in Lowell that inspired the book.

About The Book: Three brothers. One city. Countless shenanigans. 1970s Lowell is a different place from what we know today. Gary is determined to get a girlfriend, put his younger brothers in their place, and protect his image of the tough-guy. Following the advice of the neighborhood know-it-all, Gary sets out to get all these things and more. Follow him through the streets of Lowell in this nostalgic, coming-of-age collection of short stories. 

About The Author: Amy Reidy was born in Lowell. Even though she currently lives in New Hampshire, she will always be a Lowell girl at heart.
She feels that she has been blessed with the world's greatest family and is grateful for her siblings, in-laws, friends, and dogs. She considers the health, happiness, and success of her children, their partners, her husband, and grandchildren among her greatest accomplishments in life. 

A Q&A and book selling/signing will take place after the event for those interested. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
