Story Times and Stories

We had a lovely story time today, complete with fall leaves--the warm colors of which kept us cozy as it rained and hailed outside! Our next story time is Thursday, October 18, at 10:00 a.m.; the theme will be DINOSAURS. We'll then follow that up with another story time one week later on Thursday, October 25, with a HALLOWEEN theme (costumes welcome!). If you want your name added to the e-mail announcement list for story times let us know.

Central Oregon's premier literary event, The Nature of Words, is quickly approaching (October 31-November 4), so now is the time to get your tickets ... and to get your hands on some of the books by this year's guest authors. I'm currently reading Benjamin Percy's wonderful short story collection, Refresh, Refresh, and Timothy Egan's National Book Award winner The Worst Hard Time is moving off the shelves at a rapid pace. And there's plenty more to choose from! Look for:

TIMOTHY EGAN: The Good Rain, Lasso the Wind, and The Worst Hard Time
HEATHER VOGEL FREDERICK: The Education of Patience Goodspeed, The Voyage of Patience Goodspeed, The Mother-Daughter Book Club, Spy Mice: The Black Paw, Spy Mice: For Your Paws Only, and Spy Mice: Goldwhiskers
CRAIG JOHNSON: The Cold Dish, Death without Company, and Kindness Goes Unpunished
TED KOOSER: Delights & Shadows, Flying at Night, The Poetry Home Repair Manual, Writing Brave & Free, and Weather Central
KATHLEEN DEAN MOORE: The Pine Island Paradox and Riverwalking: Reflections on Moving Water
BENJAMIN PERCY: The Language of Elk and Refresh, Refresh
PATTIANN ROGERS: Firekeeper: Selected Poems, Generations, and Splitting and Binding
