    Come and meet new friends and join in on a game that is played all over the world. Mah jongg enthusiasts of all skill levels are invited to play every Tuesday from 10am to 1pm. The sessions are open ended and participants can play as many or as few games as they want. Players with mah jongg sets are encouraged to bring them as the library has a limited number to loan. This program is free, ongoing and open to players from all communities.

    What’s it like to be a school nurse? A firefighter? A farmer? A police officer? A community volunteer? Often we don’t know much about the work of others, but “A Day in the Life,” a program organized by We the People Warwick, will offer a glimpse into daily lives such as these.  We often don’t know much about what others do all day, and this evening gives three local residents - horse farm owner Shayne Haysom, Repair Coach and rescuer of broken items Fred Rossi, and realtor Chris Staritz - a chance to describe the joys and challenges of their jobs or volunteer activities. There will be time for questions from the audience. This program is part of We the People Warwick’s mission to connect people in our community together.

    Join Lauri Byro and the Circle for a discussion of the work of American Poet, Tony Hoagland.  Click here for the poems to be discussed.

    Hoagland was born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. He earned a BA from the University of Iowa and an MFA from the University of Arizona. Hoagland was the author of the poetry collections Sweet Ruin (1992), which was chosen for the Brittingham Prize in Poetry and won the Zacharis Award from Emerson College; Donkey Gospel (1998), winner of the James Laughlin Award; What Narcissism Means to Me (2003), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; Rain (2005); Unincorporated Persons in the Late Honda Dynasty (2010); Application for Release from the Dream (2015); Recent Changes in the Vernacular (2017); and Priest Turned Therapist Treats Fear of God (2018). He has also published two collections of essays about poetry: Real Sofistakashun (2006) and Twenty Poems That Could Save America and Other Essays (2014). Hoagland’s poetry is known for its acerbic, witty take on contemporary life and “straight talk,” in the words of New York Times reviewer Dwight Garner: “At his frequent best … Hoagland is demonically in touch with the American demotic.”
    Hoagland’s many honors and awards included fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. He received the O.B. Hardison Prize for Poetry and Teaching from the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Poetry Foundation’s Mark Twain Award, and the Jackson Poetry Prize from Poets & Writers. Hoagland taught at the University of Houston and in the Warren Wilson MFA program.
