Join Bernard Norcott-Mahany and friends in an afternoon of stories and songs about “love gone wrong,” part of the Library’s Adult Winter Reading Program themed Love on the Rocks. The annual, two-month event spotlights books about broken hearts, bad romances, and the unfortunate reality that not every fairy tale ends happily ever after.

Norcott-Mahany, a senior technical assistant at the Library’s L.H. Bluford Branch, is accompanied by a cast of local actors and entertainers in staging scenes of ill-fated romance from Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Homer’s Odyssey, James Thurber’s short story “A Couple of Hamburgers,” and other familiar works. Mournful ballads and classic, lovelorn blues songs intersperse the performances.
