Slinky Slithertail, medieval music

This week's Dryden Courier leads with a story about Slinky Slithertail, the:

"guilt-prone protagonist in Dryden resident Margaret Laurenzen's first book, which was published three years ago with the help of twelve-year old illustrator Mathew Habalou, a Dryden intermediate school student."

Laurenzen, who was 77 when the first book was published in 2000, has a sequel, Slinky Slithertail and the Talent Show, coming out in a few weeks and a third book coming this spring.

The Courier also interviews John and Sondra Bromka, who will be performing as the Bells and Motley Consort at the Southworth Library's "Victorian Musical Celebration of Christmas Past." The article talks about the music and instruments the two will be using, as well as the library's other activities planned for this coming Friday and Saturday. The concert will be at 7:00pm at the Dryden Village Hall (map) on Saturday, December 4th.

Oddly, an article about the county jail situation written by Dryden County Legislator Martha Robertson appears in the Ithaca Times but not in the Courier.
