Roundup: Fergie, Nicholas Britell, Kids, Animals …

======================================================

What are you doing at 11 a.m. today? (Or 4 p.m., if you’re in the UK?)

Sarah Ferguson — aka “Fergie” — will read The Sly Fox of the Mind — on her YouTube channel, “Story Time with Fergie and Friends.”

The children’s book is by Westporters Brooke Olstein and Lee Scharfstein. Click here to join the fun.

“06880” missed this a week ago. But — as Tommy Greenwald points out — a recent New York Times Magazine story on Nicholas Britell (“The Composer at the Frontier of Movie Music”) notes that he’s a former Westporter.

Despite winning a Westport Arts Horizon Award in 2012, Britell — who scored “Succession,” “Moonlight,” “12 Years a Slave” and “The Underground Railroad,” among others — is often overlooked here.

He graduated from Hopkins School in New Haven in 1998, then headed to Juilliard and Harvard. Click here for the full Times story.

Because few drivers pay attention to stop signs, residents have taken matters into their own hands.

And finally … in 1792, the New York Stock Exchange was formed. The world would never be the same.

    I feel like every stop sign in town could use a sub-sign with a reminder that stopping is not actually optional. Or maybe a more robust traffic enforcement. Either way, the amount of rolled and outright ignored stop signs I see on a daily basis in this town is wild.
