small town

Celebrated singer-songwriter Bob Warren will present a paean in song to his hometown of Greenwich in Small Town World -- a free concert that is part of Greenwich Free Library's live music series, "Music is Living History" on Saturday, August 5 at 7 p.m. at the Greenwich High School Auditorium. 

Bob Warren joins us to tell us more along with Annie Miller, Director of the Greenwich Free Library, and performer in Small Town World, Kayla Stewart.

The Small Business Revolution is a movement created to shine a spotlight on the vital impact that small businesses have on our economy, our communities and our daily lives.

The organization traveled the country, capturing the inspiring stories of 100 small businesses and recognized that nowhere in America are small businesses more critical, and more under siege, than in our small towns. They created the Small Business Revolution – Main Street to help those small businesses, and in turn, those small towns, reignite the spark that drives them and keeps people coming back.

Each season, The Small Business Revolution seeks out America’s most inspiring small towns, and award the winner with a $500,000 revitalization. The season 1 winner was Wabash, Indiana and voting is open now for the finalists in Season 2. The 5 finalists are Bristol Borough, PA; Georgetown, SC; Kingsburg, CA; Red Wing, MN; and North Adams, MA!

Eric Kerns, co-Founder, Bright Ideas Brewing and Partner in Hotel Development in North Adams and Suzy Helme, Community Events Director of North Adams join us to tell us more. 

Fannie Flagg is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café and A Redbird Christmas.

Her latest novel, The Whole Town’s Talking, tells the story of Lordor Nordstrom, his Swedish mail-order bride and their neighbors and descendants as they live, love, die and carry on in mysterious and surprising ways.

  Award-winning novelist and poet, Stephen Dobyns, returns to the thriller genre after a fifteen-year hiatus with The Burn Palace.

The novel is a blend of suspense, supernatural underpinnings and sexual shenanigans set in a provincial New England town. Dobyns creates an insular community sideswiped by madness when a series of odd, violent crimes occur in rapid succession.
