“Mom and Dad: Tell Your Friends to Be Ready to Rock” Image
Former Westporter and 1983 Staples High School graduate Heather Hardy returned (see WestportNow July 26, 2008) to the Levitt Pavilion tonight to perform with her four-piece Lil’ Mama Band. Heather, an electronic violinist and vocalist, told her septuagenarian parents Neil and Judy, who are longtime Westport residents, that “if your friends are coming tonight, tell them to be ready to rock.”  Heather, who lives in Tucson since 1997 said her career was influenced by the late Sam Taylor, a popular rhythm & blues singer, songwriter and guitarist who was inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame in 1995.

Library Sale Includes Valuable Editions Image
The Westport Public Library summer book sale beginning Saturday will include a number of noted—and valuable—books which the library has segregated into a glass-enclosed display case in the McManus Room. They include an over sized book that depicts almost 400 jewelry creations of the American-born, Paris-based designer Joel Arthur Rosenthal. It was published in 2002 to coincide with the London exhibition, “The Jewels of JAR Paris.” The library has put a $950 price tag on its rare copy, while a dealer on the Internet is asking $4,000 for its pristine edition.

Police Question Man in Removal of Placeholder Boxes

Westport police have questioned a Westport man in connection with the removal of boxes and crates lined up by book dealers and others to save their place in line at the Westport Public Library book sale which begins Image
This WestportNow photo published early Tuesday of boxes lined up to save places for Saturday’s library book sale may have led to a man removing some of the boxes, according to a source familiar with the investigation. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U. Miller for

The man, whose identity was not disclosed, was apparently unhappy that people were able to save their place by putting boxes, crates and baskets with their name outside the sale entrance, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

The man was spotted by a volunteer library worker today removing U.S. postal crates from in front of the library sale tent, the source said. His license plate was reported to Westport police who later interviewed him about the incident.

The man apparently left a sign saying: “No boxes; if you want to wait in line, wait in line. Thanks.”

Eileen Wiseman: “I’m here to help build support and excitement.” Contributed photo
New Haven’s Long Wharf Theatre has named Eileen Wiseman, a longtime leader at the Westport Arts Center, its new development director, effective immediately.

Wiseman, a Weston resident who joined the Long Wharf Theatre development staff in April, had spent the past eight years as the executive/artistic director of the Westport Arts Center, overseeing 60 programs a year including exhibitions, concerts, lectures, and literature and film programs.

“All my life I’ve been coming to this theater—-it is the place I learned to love live performance, the place that shaped my sense of what theater should be,” Wiseman said.

“Long Wharf Theatre has a strong sense of mission and the artistic and organizational confidence to use this crazy time we’re in to plot an even more interesting, vital path into the future.
