ENFIELD- Friends of the Enfield Library will be hosting Denis Horgan on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at their regular 7 p.m. meeting. "Are Newspapers Dead?" is the topic for the evening. Denis Horgan was born in a Boston taxicab during a Thanksgiving snowstorm which didn’t quite make it to the hospital on time. Whether auspicious or merely suspicious, such a beginning is likely to shape how you look at the world. Denis decided early to look on the world through the eyes of a journalist. Starting as a copyboy at the Boston Globe, he worked in a variety of capacities — reporter, editor, columnist — for the Bangkok World, the Washington Star and for 25 years at The Hartford Courant. As a writer, Denis Horgan has won a variety of awards and honors. He has written for newspapers his entire career and also written about newspapers in his books. The question, "Are Newspapers Dead?" is, thus, one that is close to his heart -- as well as to the spirit of the diminishing but loyal core of newspaper readers everywhere. Will we have to do without the daily paper? Where will we get the news? The comics? The coupons? What's going on? How did we get in this situation? Please join us at the Enfield Central Library, 104 Middle Road, Enfield. Admittance is free, come and bring a friend!
