"Ann and Abby" by the Delvena Theatre Company     7:00

The Delvena Theatre Company will return to present Ann and Abby at the Abington Public Library, on Thursday, October 17, at 7:00 PM. How did two fifties-era Iowan housewives, who performed songs by the Andrews Sisters and were married on the same day, become two of the most influential advice columnists of all time? Ann and Abby, a live 3-person comedy, examines how chutzpah, hard work and a bit of luck propelled the twins into becoming two of the most beloved and respected women of the 20th century. With humor, snappy one-liners and a whole lot of love, Abby and Ann will dole out advice to the audience on the proper way to hang toilet paper, how to stop your husband from wearing a Tarzan suit and how not to be a lovelorn teen. The twins will also provide insights into how they, as children of immigrant parents, remained the world’s most popular advisers for over 50 years.  

Discussion with the audience will follow the performance. An edutainment production, written by Lynne Moulton, the show will feature Lynne Moulton, Fran Baron and Joseph Zamparelli.  The Delvena Theatre Company has been doing to-go shows for the last several years at various venues throughout the New England area. 

Registration is not necessary for this program; sixty adults and teens (age sixteen and older) will be accommodated at this program on a first-to-arrive basis. This program is funded by State Aid to Public Libraries.

Abington Author Event with Nicole Asselin: Murder at First Pitch     7:00

Love baseball?  Love books set in Abington?  Join us on Tuesday October 29 at 7:00 PM when Abington resident, Nicole Asselin, will speak about her first novel, Murder at First Pitch.  Nicole is a life-long Red Sox fan and her debut novel blends her love of baseball with her passion for mysteries.  This story features an Independent League Baseball team, the Abington Armadillos.  Madeline, the main character returns to Abington to accept her place in the family baseball legacy.  The author says that “the first time Madeline enters the ballpark she discovers the brutally bludgeoned body of a prospective scout in the visitor’s dugout. Using her position in the team’s front office, she learns more about the victim and identifies potential suspects, though she may have bitten off more than she can chew,”  Books will be available for purchase and signing after the event.  

Registration is not necessary and sixty people will be accomodated on a first-to-arrive basis.  This program is provided through the generosity of the author.  The Friends of the Library will offer light refreshments.
