None.  This week is a Free Write.  Bring any piece you’re working on.

Prompts for June 29:

You are going through boxes of mostly junk (throw away; give away; a few things that you will keep) when you uncover a small, wrapped present.  What do you think?  What do you do?  How do you feel?

Walking home, you find a shoe on the side of the road. What kind of shoe is it? Who is its owner? What happened? Why is the shoe there? Where is the other shoe now? You can use all of these questions or just one to explore what happened.

Mystery Book Group

Saturday, June 3 at 10:30 AM – Dog On It by Spencer Quinn- Library Reading Room

Summary from Goodreads: “Chet, the wise and lovable canine narrator, and Bernie, a down-on-his-luck private investigator, are quick to take a new case involving a frantic mother searching for her teenage daughter. This well-behaved and gifted student may or may not have been kidnapped, but she has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters. With Chet’s highly trained nose leading the way, their hunt for clues takes them into the desert to biker bars and other exotic locales—until the bad guys try to turn the tables and the resourceful duo lands in the paws of peril.”

Community Book Group

Monday, June 12 at 11:15 AM – Dinner with Edward: A Story of an Unexpected Friendship by Isabel Vincent – YMCA Community Center

Summary from Goodreads:”When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Thinking she is merely helping Edward’s daughter–who lives far away and has asked her to check in on her nonagenarian dad in New York–Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life.

As Edward and Isabel meet weekly for the glorious dinners that Edward prepares, he shares so much more than his recipes for apple galette or the perfect martini, or even his tips for deboning poultry. Edward is teaching Isabel the luxury of slowing down and taking the time to think through everything she does, to deconstruct her own life, cutting it back to the bone and examining the guts, no matter how messy that proves to be.”

Paranormal Book Group

Saturday, June 24 at 10:30 AM –  Locke & Key series by Joe Hill – Library Reading Room

Read as many volumes as you would like!

Summary from Goodreads: “A brutal and tragic event drives the Locke family from their home in California to the relative safety of their ancestral estate in Lovecraft, Massachusetts, an old house with powerful keys and fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. As siblings Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke discover the secrets of the old house, they also find that it’s home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all…. “
