Even if you don’t have an inkling…

Tonight, on Tuesday, September 11 at 7:00PM, the inklings will meet in the Winsor Room. We take particular pleasure in listening to other inklings read their works aloud.

Anything works.

We are a small group led by Joe Lynch who promises to supply you with endless handouts that will inspire you, make you laugh…

The Inklings Fall 2017

The name inklings is not original. We borrowed it. It goes back to the 1930’s. And that has a history all its own!

I hope to see you there.

An Evening with Kermit Roosevelt
Wednesday, September 26 at 7:00 PM in the Winsor Room
Radnor Memorial Library is pleased to welcome Kermit Roosevelt III, author of Allegiance: A Novel. Based on actual events and real-life figures, Allegiance plunges the reader into the political debate surrounding the imprisonment of thousands of innocent Americans during WWII. This suspenseful novel raises questions about liberty, political power, and is a thoughtful examination of one of the worst civil rights violations in U.S. history.
Kermit Roosevelt is a Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Pennsylvania, a former clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter and an award-winning author of fiction and non-fiction. Roosevelt’s law review articles have been cited twice by the Supreme Court. A graduate of Harvard University and Yale Law School, Kermit Roosevelt is a great-great-grandson of United States President Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) and the fifth cousin four times removed of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945). Books will be available for purchase. Seating is limited and registration is required.
