March & April 2014
Winter is rolling along and it won’t be long before the warm Spring weather will be here. In the meantime, I hope you’re enjoying lots of time cozying up with good books and magazines. You can’t beat cold Winter days and nights for that delightful activity.
Another fun thing to do when you’re indoors is to play card and board games with your family. Whether the members of your family are school-aged children, toddlers, teens, or adults, we have age-appropriate games for them.
Be sure to look over our Upcoming Events to see which authors are going to be visiting us. Then mark your calendar for the ones you want to meet. It’s a great opportunity to visit with the authors and hear them talk about their books. If you’re a budding writer yourself, you can get valuable tips from the author’s presentation and Q&A sessions.
The BIG READ starts on March 10. The community will be reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed, which details her solo hike along the eleven hundred mile Pacific Crest Trail. It is an inspirational and informational wilderness survival story that began because she was hoping to find solace in dealing with disappointments in her life. She found that, and much more.
There will be discussions of Wild in area libraries and at Books & Co. Our two discussions will be held on Wednesday, March 26 at 7 pm and Tuesday, April 8 at 7 pm. We hope you can attend at least one of those or one at a library. You’ll find a list of the discussion locations at Books & Co., at area libraries and at www.bigread.org.
