Good morning Greenwich.

There are plenty of holiday-related and book-related events happening in and around Greenwich this week. Here's a snapshot of some events, along with a link to a complete list of programs around town.

It will be a feast for young eyes and ears when the Friends of the Byram Shubert Library present Walter Wick, photographer, illustrator and author of the "I Spy" and "Do You See What I See" books for children in this year's Esther Banker Memorial Series for Children at 3 p.m., Dec. 9 in the Friends Community Room of the Byram Shubert Library, 21 Mead Ave.

Temple Sholom's Lunch 'N Learn series continues Dec. 10 with Elissa Bemporad, author of "Becoming Soviet Jews" who will discuss how the Jews acculturated to Soviet society in the 1920s and '30s while remaining committed to older patterns of Jewish identity. A kosher lunch will be served, and books will be available for purchase and signing.

The Greenwich United Way Community Planning Council’s annual Legislative Breakfast is Wednesday, Dec 11 in the Greenwich Town Hall Meeting Room at 7:45 a.m. All interested residents, local organizations and service agencies, town government employees, and other community leaders involved in local health and human services are invited to take part.

The studio is open on Wednesdays.

Sachi Parker, daughter of Shirley Maclaine, acts in a one-woman play about her  bizarre childhood "and the devastating, sometimes hilarious effect it had on her adult life, her career, her relationships with men, her frustrating attempts to have a normal relationship with her mother and her entirely different, loving relationship with her children [...]" at the Theater Artists Workshop in Norwalk, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14, at 8, and Sunday, Dec.15, at 3 p.m.
