The votes are in. This summer the 10 branches in the Barry Lawrence Regional Library System sponsored reading contests. Janea Coker, Marionville Branch Library Supervisor, invited me to speak at the two winning branches and I happily agreed. The winners are Pierce City, Missouri and Cassville, Missouri. Here’s the schedule.
10:00 am- Pierce City Branch Library-101 N Walnut- (417) 476-5110
2:00 pm- Cassville Branch Library- 301 West 17th Street (417) 847-2121
These events are open to the public at no charge so if you live in the area I hope you’ll come to say hello and bring any youngsters you can round up this close to the end of summer. I’ll read some of my poems, talk a bit about reading and how important it is, answer questions and read a poem with my favorite great-niece, Alexis Egleston!
