Judith Zaccaria, from the CourierTraveler, will talk about her experience as a play reviewer with about a 7:15 p.m. start Monday, immediately following the Friends business meeting.

All are welcome to come at the Winfield Public Library.

While growing up in Massachusetts, Zaccaria remembers seeing “Macbeth,” with Dame Judith Anderson as Lady Macbeth on television when she was 10 or 11. From there, a love of comedy developed when she found a book of plays in Lenox Library and discovered “Arsenic and Old Lace” in its pages. Her studies and work led her through several states and experiences until she came to Kansas to teach at Southwestern for a year.

Zaccaria then began to work for the CourierTraveler, first as a play reviewer before she went on to hold positions of copy editor, lifestyles editor and reporter. Eventually she became the Winfield news manager, which is the position she holds today.

This program is hosted by The Friends of the Winfield Public Library. This group supports library activities such as the Summer Reading Program and the Discovery exhibits. For those who believe in literacy programs, love the library and wish to support strong community, membership in The Friends is a great way to show support.
