Counting down

It's almost here -- next week One Island One Book, featuring The Last Resort by Alison Lurie, begins with a talk by Cynthia Crossen, a Key West resident who writes the "Dear Book Lover" column for the Wall Street Journal -- and is vice president of the Friends of the Key West Library. Cynthia's talk will be at 6 p.m. in the Library Auditorium -- should be very interesting.

The Book Bites reading group will meet twice next week to discuss the book. All are welcome to attend; you do not need to be a Monroe County Library cardholder or to have attended a Book Bites session before. Those meetings are at 4:30 on Thursday, March 10, and 2 p.m. Saturday, March 12. Both of those meetings will take place in the Conference Room, off the Reference Department (where it is usually very chilly so bring a sweater no matter the temperature outside).
If you haven't yet read the book it may be too late to get a library copy before next week -- but they have them for sale at Key West Island Books, 513 Fleming St., for $5.98.
