Coming up at the library...


TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22

Meet author Jeri Westerson
Buena Vista Branch, 7:00 p.m.

Come for coffee and conversation with the author of the Crispin Guest Medieval Noir mystery series. Westerson will discuss the latest book in this series, Shadow of the Alchemist, and will show off her cache of medieval weaponry!










FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25

...is the deadline for teens to submit their FAN FICTION STORIES for our Teen Read Week contest! The stories, which are to be 5-10 pages based on either the story or characters (or both) of a novel, series, manga, or TV show (in other words, writing your OWN story, using someone else's characters), may be emailed to imafan@earthlink.net by 5:00 p.m. on the 25th.

The top stories will be announced a week later, at our Dia de los Muertos Miniature Ofrenda Craft. To sign up for this craft, which is on Friday, November 1, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Buena Vista, please email melliott@burbankca.gov with your name and phone number. We will make miniature ofrendas in Altoids tins--teens should bring a picture of the person they wish to memorialize (a copy, don't cut up your original!) and we will supply the rest. This craft program is FOR TEENS ONLY.
