Meet Marley, the creator and author of "Hello Roara!"
Marley and her father, Josh, collaborated to create a delightful tale about a dinosaur, and are coming to North Branch to teach you how you, too, can be an author!
Come out, hear Roara's story, make your own picturebook, check out some real fossils, and get a toy!
This event made possible by a generous gift by the Mary Jo and Nello Pace Trust, and in collaboration between North Branch and the Bone Room.

Dorothy Allison, groundbreaking author of Bastard Out of Carolina, describes herself as a feminist, a working class story teller, a Southern expatriate, a sometime poet and a happily born again Californian. Join us in the Central Library community meeting room for an hour that is sure to be thought-provoking and entertaining.
At Read & Share we discuss the books and audiobooks we have been reading and listening to. We read all the genres and briefly critique our books. Light refreshments are served.
Linda McDonald, author of The Perfect Deception, reads from her page-turner of pulpit to pew manipulation and mayhem and shares her journey to publication. Her novel was described as "a great read with unsuspecting twists and turns" by Dishan Washington, an Essence Best Selling Author. Linda will take questions and sign books after the event.
in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room
Circumtext is a participatory literary event where all attendees are invited to read aloud from texts that they did not write.
Why should kids have all the fun? Adults deserve storytimes, too. Join us for William Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily", the darkly humorous tale of a Southern spinster whose secrets emerge posthumously, through the voices of her hometown neighbors. With multiple readers, two kinds of puppets, sets and sound effects, it's Faulkner as you've never experienced him before. After the reading, stay for a discussion of the story, genre and author. Intended for teens and older.
