The Friends of the New Salem Public Library is kicking off the 2019 season of Reading Aloud for Grownups on Wednesday with a couple of veteran readers: Dee Waterman and Richard Trousdell.

The program, now in its 12th season, starts at 7 p.m. A snow date of Feb. 20 has been set, and two additional sessions have also been scheduled for March and April.

Trousdell is professor emeritus in acting and directing at the University of Massachusetts, and Waterman is a real estate agent from Amherst, who has been active in community theater for years. Last season, they read together from two plays to the delight of a packed house in the library.

The upcoming programs feature Christopher Turner and Sally Howe on March 13 (snow date of March 20) and Lisa Finestone and Sue Dunbar on April 10 (snow date of April 17). All sessions start at 7 p.m.

Wine, cheese, coffee, tea and desserts are offered. There is no charge to attend, though donations benefiting the Friends of the New Salem Public Library are welcome.
