Staff from Gunn Museum in Washington will present a series of coffee hour readings from museum archives the first Monday of each month from October to June.

The next reading will be held Jan. 7 at 10 a.m. at the senior center located in Bryan Memorial Plaza.

Staff will read "Strangers in Paradise: Class, Status and Ethnicity in a Connecticut Town" by Roberta Satow.

The paper discusses the impact part-time residents have had on Washington, the interaction between old and new New Yorkers in town, and how the influx of weekenders has changed the social structure of the community.
