Author Event – Carlo DeVito


On Thursday, November 20, at 7:00 PM, we invite you to kick off the holiday season with a reading of Inventing Scrooge, by Carlo DeVito. The event will include a reading from the book and discussion with the author. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments will be served.

When Charles Dickens conceived of the story for A Christmas Carol on a train ride to Manchester in October 1843, little did he know that his “ghostly little book” would reinvent the way we keep Christmas. And while the timeless tale of redemption inspires us every year, Inventing Scrooge tells the story behind the story.

Carlo DeVito is a lifelong publishing executive with more than 20 years of experience. He has written more than 15 books, publishes a highly-acclaimed wine blog, and is owner of the Hudson-Chatham Winery.

Mitten Tree for the Holidays

The Stephentown Memorial Library is sponsoring a Mitten Tree again this year.  We will begin accepting donations on December 1 and complete our collection on December 19.  We invite the community to bring new mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves to decorate our tree at the library.  Just after the holidays, we will donate these items to a local agency for distribution to families in need.  Children’s items are especially needed.  Help us keep others warm this holiday season and decorate our Mitten Tree.
