Alan Powers' adaptation of Giordano Bruno's hilarious "Candelaio" (1582). See Youtube for a couple scenes acted at the Bridewell Theatre, London in 2014: "Candelaio Final Edit." For more on Bruno, see Powers' lecture on him at Harvard Center for Astrophysics: google "Giordano Bruno Harvard Video."

While we live in Raynham, MA, we often use the Taunton Library for hard to find books (that we need quickly) and for library passes (they have many more than the Raynham Library). Friendly and helpful staff.

Wide selection of everything! Staff are always helpful and know exactly where things are. Book sales every Saturday with most books costing from 6/$1.00 (romance novels) to $3.00. Really good deals!
