Love Bites: Vampires in Literature
Local presenter Barry Deitz will be at the LeVanway Room at the Greenfield Public Library on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at 6pm to talk about Vampires in Literature.
Did you know the first vampire story written in English was inspired by Lord Byron? It might have been inspired by that magic night in Switzerland when Mary Shelley and the poets Shelley and Byron had a ghost story contest which ultimately resulted in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Barry will cover literary vampires from this beginning up through those in popular culture. Do you have a favorite vampire? Come see what you can learn about him or her!
This program, sponsored by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to the public.

Senior Class at Baystate Franklin Medical Center will host a program, How to Put Your Doctor out of Business, Tuesday, February 23, 6 – 7:30 pm, in BFMC’s main conference rooms. Guest speaker Seth Kupferschmid, MD, a primary care physician at BMP – Deerfield Adult Medicine, will lead an interactive discussion on how to seize control of your health care destiny. While it’s true that everyone needs a primary care provider to help monitor overall health, there are steps you can take to reduce the need for frequent visits. Learn how to live healthier to reduce your risk or the severity of chronic conditions, like high blood pressure and diabetes; increase your overall wellness; and potentially reduce your reliance on medications.
“Bring your questions and your can-do spirit,” said Dr. Kupferschmid.
