Friday, July 20: At The Public Lie-brary

Sorry for that tortured pun of a headline. Rest assured, it doesn't represent the level of wit and wisdom you'll be subjected to at Long Island's beautiful and distinguished cultural institution, The Port Washington Public Library. Come and listen, laugh, cry or cringe as seems appropriate, then figure out which one of these basically honest people thinks you'll believe anything.

Friday, July 20 @ 8pm
One Library Drive, Port Washington, NY
(516) 883-4400
