Spring is in the air and Frenchtown is ready to welcome the warmer days with a variety of events throughout the month of May. In conjunction with New Hope Celebrates and Pride Week, the Frenchtown Business and Professional Association seeks to express its openness, inclusiveness and solidarity with the LGBTQ community on May 20th by gathering with loved ones by the river, painting the town rainbow and encouraging others to do the same! The Book Garden welcomes back acclaimed author Laurie Wallmark on May 21st to celebrate her second children’s book, Grace Hopper Queen of Computer Code. Wallmark continues her exploration of women pioneers in math and science. Grace Hopper was a pioneer in computer programming whose accomplishments have had lasting influence. Wallmark’s debut story, Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine is a picture book biography about the world’s first computer programmer-over a hundred years before the invention of the electronic computer. The afternoon celebration of all three of these amazing women will be on Sunday, May 21 from 2pm to 4pm. Musicians, poets, spoken word and visual artists under 21 years won’t want to miss Under 21 Open Mic at Early Bird Espresso & Mercantile, Thursday, May 26 from 6pm-9pm. This is an open, encouraging environment for up and comers. The Delaware River Towns Photo Project celebrates life along the river and will feature images captured by experienced and new photographers.
