About this Issue
Note from the Editors
This issue of The Crooked Lake Review introduces a Library Events column that lists programs, exhibits, new book acquisitions and schedules of local libraries. Alongside the new library column is a report of area writers groups by John Rezelman. The listing of events of libraries, writing groups and drama groups is to be to be a regular feature in each issue of The Crooked Lake Review. We list local museums and their summer hours for visitors. This list was taken from Steuben Echoes, the newsletter of the Steuben County Historical Society. The list was prepared by the society's president, John Roy.
