If you love to read, love to write, or both, come to Indie Author Day at the North Castle Public Library this Saturday! We’ll be having three excellent authors visit us for readings, book signings, and conversations. They are:
Patricia Dunn, author of Rebels By Accident
Jimin Han, author of A Small Revolution
Diane Pomerantz, author of Lost in the Reflecting Pool
To find out more about these wonderful authors, just click on the images below!
Ms. Dunn and Ms. Han teach creative writing at Sarah Lawrence college, and they’ll be presenting two hands-on workshops at noon and at 1:00 p.m. All writers and aspiring writers will want to attend! Ms. Pomerantz will be doing a reading and a book signing, and you’ll have a chance to share coffee, donut holes, and conversation with all three authors.
Like all our library programs, Indie Author Day is totally free and open to the public. No registration is necessary, and writers of all ages are welcome. See you at the library!
Let’s do another poll! Any guesses as to where this man might be standing?
The signposts might help a bit, but the pose will help more!
Wherever he is, this gentleman is clearly exercising his right to free speech! Libraries celebrate that every year, too. In fact, I think we celebrate that right every day.
Banned books week runs from September 24 to September 30 this year. Libraries everywhere will have special displays of books that have been banned or challenged. Why not celebrate your freedom to read by visiting your local library and borrowing a challenged book? Here are just a few that we have on the shelf in North Castle.
Hi, everyone! It’s fall, the weather is beautiful, and the leaves are starting to fly. Book leaves, that is! We’ve got several literary events coming up soon!
First, our creative writing club starts next week. Do you love to write, and are you looking for a warm, supportive group of fellow writers? Then this might be the group for you! We meet on Monday evenings at 6:30, every other week, starting on September 18. The group is open to writers of all ages from 16 on up and all writing levels.
My colleague Lisa is also leading an event!

If we’re lucky and the weather permits, everyone in the U.S., as well as parts of Mexico, Canada, and Europe, will get to see a partial solar eclipse. The path of totality cuts right through the country, from landfall on the coast of Oregon in the morning till departure on the coast of South Carolina in the early afternoon. If you’d like to know exactly when the partial eclipse will hit Armonk (or wherever you happen to be on the 21st!), this handy link will tell you.
Yes, really! There is such a thing. Click on the picture below to read a story about it.
Of course, if you’re looking for something to read, whether fiction or nonfiction, brand-new or classic, we can help! We’ve got lots of books for readers of all ages, and e-books and audiobooks, too. Just browse through this blog for some suggestions. Try the tag “reading”, and you’ll find lots of books my colleagues and I enjoyed. I’m going to list just a couple of new ones here, too (you can find this first one in the system, and don’t forget all our wonderful e-book databases!)
By the author of the bestselling “A Man Called Ove”, this is the story of a grandfather, a son, a grandson, and a family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s. Touching and beautifully written. Continue reading “It’s National Book Day!”
