We call it working "in tandem" ....

This Saturday, come as your favorite literary or artistic character or just come as you are to this free program! Join us at the Lafayette Library Arts & Science Room, where our featured authors will read from their work, and the featured visual artists will speak about their work. Stay for the reception and costume contest to get into the Halloween spirit!

This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Lafayette.
