It’s all @ your library

Ada 's bookshelf: read

The Oldest Living Things in the World
4 of 5 stars
I ordered this from the library just to look at the pictures, but also enjoyed many of the essays as well. Beautiful images of our wonderful planet.

The Lion and the Bird
4 of 5 stars
Sweet story of a winter spent together: lion and bird. The artwork is lovely, the story minimally written allowing toddlers to "read" the wordless pages, explaining the action of the story to their grownup.

Writing can be a lonely process. But it doesn't have to be! 


Join new Ada Library staffer Amy Eddings for a bi-weekly meet-up for adult writers and aspiring writers.  We'll begin our time together with writing practice exercises in the manner of Natalie Goldberg's classic guide, Writing Down the Bones. (Copies will be made available at the library).  We'll share our work through Natalie's suggested process, which is non-judgmental and supportive.  Whatever you're working on, or want to start, this is the place to join others who love writing, too, build a supportive community of fellow creative.


Amy has more than 20 years' experience as a journalist, and is currently contributing to the online publication, 
She was most recently the local host of NPR's "All Things Considered" at WNYC in New York City.


We'll be meeting the second and fourth Wednesday of every month.  Our first dates are:
May 13, 6p.m.
May 27, 6p.m.
June 10, 6p.m.
June 24, 6p.m.
