Book Event Tonight: POWERLESS

Join us tonight when local author Jim Owen discusses his new book Powerless: Our Children's Future at 7:00 p.m. here at Camalli (1288 SW Simpson, Suite C). We are not daunted by the snow, so the event goes forward as planned.

Other upcoming events . . .

February 7 . . . Story Time at 10:00 a.m.; theme is transportation
February 8 . . . Judith Montgomery @ 6:00 p.m., reading from her latest poetry chapbook, Pulse and Constellation
February 13 . . . Story Time at 3:00 p.m.

Outside the store, mark your calendars for February 21, when Word Cafe once again takes place at COCC at 7:30. This event features poetry and fiction performed featuring Brad Hills new repertory group as well as a unique reading of poetry interpreted by dance and accompanied by live music. The performances will be followed by readings by featured local authors--including Suzanne Burns (see below) and an open mic.

On FEBRUARY 4 we begin Creative Consciousness. The idea for this program was taken from local resident Karen Castelbaum, who places an information box (real-estate style) in front of her house. Every month she places a poem in the box for people to take. We're using the idea (thanks Karen!) with Creative Consciousness. Each week we'll feature a new poem, literary passage, or piece of art (changing each Monday). On Monday the 4th we begin with a wonderful piece of poetry by Bend resident Cassie Moore, with original art by our own Britanny Zendejas. The poem and art are beautiful together, so be sure to stop by sometime after the 4th to pick one up! These are FREE, and you can pick up your piece of Creative Consciousness from the flyer box outside the front door of the store. If you'd like to submit your own work just e-mail us! We want this to be a community-centered project.

Also upcoming in the store ... local author Suzanne Burns will read from her wonderful new chapbook, Double Header. Check back in for date and time! Also look for upcoming author visits from Wayne Kee, author of the narrative poem Song of the Snake Wars . . . and Fred Swisher & Sarah Whipple, authors of 55 Myths, Tips & Secrets: Bend's Essential Guide to Landscaping.
