On Keeping a Reading Diary
My visionary friend Louise Blalock often asks people she cares about to give her a baby picture of themselves, and to describe a “lost book” from their childhood. “Everyone has one”, she’d say, “that wonderful book whose story you remember but whose title and author are lost to time. You’d give anything to find it again but the way to it is lost.”
It’s coming. Just like you remember it from childhood. May 18. Really.
What do you think of when you think “Spring”? Gardening? Outdoor exercise? Spring cleaning? Strawberry shortcake? What ever springs to mind, you are sure to find a book, magazine, or even movie about it–at the library!
Take a look at a collection of Lawn and Garden books currently on display in the new magazine section on the main floor of the Library. Checking out a few of these beautiful and helpful gardening books will give you a welcome preview of spring and summer!
Yes, the movie was powerful, but the book No Country for Old Men will knock your socks off! Check it out–at the library!
Award winning poet Michele Cooper will be reading from her recently published book Posting the Watch at the library on Tuesday, March 18 at 7PM. Michele is well-known in Rhode Island as editor of The Newport Review and the Crone’s Nest and for her tireless encouragement of poets, both new and experienced. Welcome Michele back to RI and enjoy her wonderful poems!
