Brooklyn born Konigsberg (Allen) is a film director, actor, comedian, playright, and a jazz clarinetist who plays at small venues all around Manhattan.
Allen is prolific. He has either acted, written, or directed a film in every year since 1965, for a total of 46 films. He has won three Academy Awards and has been nominated 21 times.

Woody Allen plays Miles Monroe, who, after entering the hospital for a minor ulcer operation in 1973, wakes up 200 years in the future, understandably confused.

Naturalist Lynn Levine at the Library
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Rockingham Library, Bellows Falls, VT (about 22 miles from Keene)
Price: Free

Join Lynn Levine-- naturalist, forester and author--  for an evening filled with insights and information on our local environment: trees, tales and tracking.

A very popular and entertaining presenter, Levine will talk about what she has learned of our local wildlife in her 30 years in the woods. She has brought thousands of children and adults into the outdoors to teach them how to read the signs left by animals, from mouse to moose.
The presentation will include Levine’s scat collection, skulls and hands-on-tracking tools.
Also a terrific writer, Levine's most recent book “Snow Secrets” is her first venture into youth literature. Levine’s best-selling guide book Mammal Tracks and Scat: Life Size Tracking Guide, which she co-authored with Martha Mitchell, is a  bestseller in its field.

The program is fascinating and fun for the whole family.  Copies of her books will be available for purchase and signing.
