Children's author stars at this week's River Street Wednesdays


The next River Street Wednesdays, a lunch-time city program, will feature story time with Anthony Paolucci on July 22.
The program begins at noon in front of Milford City Hall.
Paolucci is a children’s author, and he will read some of his works. He is the creator of over 30 titles, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. Ranging from preschool to adult, his stories embody a wide variety of subjects and themes.
The City of Milford and Milford Arts Council have organized River Street Wednesdays, which take place each Wednesday at noon on the parkette in front of City Hall through Aug. 26.
“The events are eclectic and entertaining, meant to highlight many of the activities and beauty of Milford, as well as create a community place in the heart of our city,” said Paige Miglio, executive director of the Milford Arts Council.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair as well as a picnic lunch.  The downtown area has a number of restaurants where a bag lunch can be purchased, organizers said. Visit the Downtown Milford Business Association at downtownmilfordct.com for a list of restaurants and shops.
