Close to 100 residents gathered at the library on Wednesday night, April 29, for the second annual State of the Village. Leaders from eight governmental entities, including Arlington Heights Mayor Tom Hayes, pictured, participated in the community conversation. Each took to the stage and presented current projects and significant developments that impact the village, area schools and park district.
What better way to learn about writing, theater and the creative process than to meet a bestselling author. That's what happened for close to 200 District 214 students who had the opportunity to meet Gregory Maguire, creator of Wicked:The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, on Wednesday, March 9 during the author's library-sponsored visit to Arlington Heights.
In addition to his library appearance, the Brooklyn-based author traveled to eleven area elementary schools where he held writing and drawing workshops over the course of four days, April 10-13. During this Friends of the Library-sponsored tour, more than 3,400 Arlington Heights students had the opportunity to meet the award-winning author including those in Districts 25, 21 and 59 and at two private schools.
