Thursday night we have two amazing programs happening.
It's the second annual Harry Potter World Book Night and we are celebrating the magical world of our favorite wizard at the Atchison Library. You may know the books and movies by heart, or maybe you haven't fallen in love with them yet, either way you can come on down and enjoy a fun filled evening that includes snacks, crafts, and an educational presentation about owls by our friends at Operation Wild Life. Please contact Holly by phone or email if you have any questions about the event. firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-367-1902 ex:206
I decided to go out of my comfort zone again. This time I thought I'd try a Western. It's the Sixth Rider by Max McCoy. I chose it because he's a Kansas author (Emporia) and it starts out in Kansas. It's told by the youngest Dalton boy, Samuel Cole Dalton. It tells his life from the Kansas farm to the Dalton Gang member. His life changes when he goes with his brother Frank to pick up a fugitive. Then continues on with his setting out in the dead of winter to avenge his brother's death. Surviving blizzards, gunfights and becoming the Choctaw Kid and robbing trains are just a few of his adventures. Its a quick read, and I like the first person approach with Sam telling the story. I'd recommend this book, even for those who aren't that interested in Westerns. Look for it in the New Large Print section. Enjoy.
