Wiese Weekend: Hunterdon County Public Library
Our main event, as planned, was a series of talks at the Hunterdon County Public Library. However, due to various complications I ended up being the only speaker. The handful of attendees who made it through the miserable weather did get to see a sampling of the originals from the library's extensive collection, as well as photocopies of all the pieces in their Wiese archive. We were also impressed with the library's near-complete set of Freddy books - the best I've seen outside of Roxbury!
|Three originals sitting in a study carrel: one from Freddy's Cousin Weedly, one illustrating a scene removed from Freddy and the Men From Mars (my theory, anyway), and the jacket art for Freddy and Simon the Dictator.

|The handful who braved miserable weather to visit the library: Kevin Parker, Susan Brynteson, Murray and Jeff Millican, Nancy Joroff, Sarah Flaherty (taking the photograph was Sharon Millican). ||
