"Fame, Fortune, and the Bran Muffins of Doom," a children's chapter book

10/18/2012 6:00 pm

Thursday October 18th, 6 p.m.

Local author and illustrator Marty Kelley joins us to read and sign his newest children's chapter book, Fame, Fortune, and the Bran Muffins of Doom. Bring the children for an enjoyable night of wackiness.
Simon and his friends, Munch and Ralph, are intent on winning the school's talent show. They are hindered slightly by the fact that they have no talent at all. Simon does have plans, however. Lots and lots of plans.

But all of Simon's planning may not be enough to overcome Mike McAlpine and his two simian sidekicks, Evil Ernie and Eviler Ernie also want to win the talent show. And even if they do manage to overcome Mike, they still have to deal with still mean Mrs. Annand and her super-dry, rock-hard, fat-free, high-fiber bran muffins of doom.

Book club rescheduled
Monday, February 16, at 7 PM
Every February, our book group meets for a discussion and dramatic reading of a play by Shakespeare. This year we're doing Othello. This meeting was originally planned for Monday, Feb. 2, but was rescheduled due to snow.  We hope for clear skies, easy driving, and any tragic outcomes only on the page. All are welcome!
(Laurence Fishburne as Othello and Kenneth Branagh as Iago, in the 1995 movie.)
