Live opera and author Dylan Newton coming to the David A. Howe


On Friday September 29, Newton presents her new book, “A Change of Plans”

La Serva Padrona” on Saturday September 30

The David A. Howe Library is very excited to welcome Dylan Newton back to celebrate the release of her most recent novel, CHANGE OF PLANS! She will captivate from the Nancy Howe Auditorium Stage and then be on hand to meet fans and sign books on Friday, September 29, at 7 p.m.. There will also be giveaways and a raffle! This event is free and open to the public but, if you haven’t already purchased a copy of Dylan’s latest and would like to get one, The Bookworm, from East Aurora, will be on hand with copies for sale.

Dylan was born and raised here in Western New York and the library was her favorite hangout. After over a decade working in corporate America, Dylan quit to pursue her passion: writing books. The gamble paid off with eight published novels, and more to come!

Dylan’s latest romantic comedy, CHANGE OF PLANS was released in August 2023 and received a starred review from both Publishers Weekly who called it, “a first-rate small-town romance,” and a starred review from Library Journal, who called it a book “for readers looking for depth and substance in their romance.” The third in her Matthews brothers’ series, the book also received acclaim from The Nerd Daily and Kirkus. 

When she isn’t writing, Dylan is pursuing her own happily ever after with her high school sweetheart as they split time between Florida and Western New York with their two much cooler daughters. Check her out at

The David A. Howe Library welcomes the Houghton Lyric Theatre, under the direction of Amanda Cox, to the Nancy Howe Auditorium on Saturday, September 30, at 7 p.m. They will perform Pergolesi’s comic one-act opera La Serva Padrona.

Houghton’s Lyric Theatre gives student singers, actors, instrumentalists, technicians and managers opportunities to develop their skills and to create high quality productions that entertain and delight audiences. We are excited to welcome them to Wellsville and the Nancy Howe Auditorium stage.

This performance is free and open to the public.
