Get Out Your Calendars

Poet and memoirist Michael Czarnecki will return to the Library at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 3, to present Stories From a Life, a memoir storytelling program. Czarnecki has said that his program is going to be “a mostly spontaneous creative nonfiction storytelling program that draws on experiences from all stages of my life.” And what a life! Along the way he has “hitchhiked 30,000 miles, backpacked in the mountains, made several cross-country journeys, raised a family, quit other work to make my living as a poet, homesteaded, etc.” Registration is not required for this free program; for more information, stop by the Library or call (315) 483-9292. This memoir program will be followed by two of Czarnecki's Palm-of-the-Hand Memoir Writing workshops in January and February, 2009. All three evenings are made possible with funding from the Friends of the Sodus Free Library.

Busy Saturday

Although we've already sold over 2,000 books and plenty of AV materials, there are still some really good buys waiting for you at our book sale. The savings will increase tomorrow, November 8th, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., when you can fill a bag for $2! Plan on filling more than one :)

When you're done shopping the sale, head to Monroe Community College for the Rochester Children's Book Festival. Children of all ages will be able to meet 44 authors and illustrators, purchase their books and get their signatures, attend readings, and do fun crafts. Teens are offered an exciting program on Writing Fantasy, which will be presented by popular authors Bruce Coville and Tamora Pierce. Festival times are 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Have a fun day!

Be Informed

We've all heard plenty about most of the candidates running for various offices tomorrow. With the ad blitzes, the judicial vote can be forgotten until we're standing in the voting booth. To be informed about judicial candidates, click here. Wayne County information can be found here. Also remember that FactCheck.org researches the truth behind all those political ads.
