The Friends of the Red Wing Public Library are hosting the Second Annual Harvest Tea and Silent Auction on Thursday, October 17. Attendees will savor a full “high tea,” enjoy a welcome cocktail, taste some teas, and perhaps meet best-selling author Laura Childs, who will be available for book signings and conversation, as well as a ‘mystery’ she has in store.
The price per ticket is $35 but two lucky people – the winners of our trivia contest – will get in free! You can find all the rules on the entry form, but please keep in mind the entries are due by 6:00pm on September 27.
Proceeds will fund a Digital Inclusion Program to make wireless “hot spots” available for patrons of the Red Wing Public Library, providing Internet access to those who may not have it available at home.
Minnesota resident, author and comedian Lorna Landvik will be at the library this Saturday, September 14, at 10am in the library’s Foot Room. She will discuss her latest book, Chronicles of a Radical Hag, a bittersweet, seriously funny novel of a life, a small town, and a key to our troubled times, raced through a newspaper columnist’s half-century of taking in, and taking on, the world. She’ll also share her excitement about an upcoming short film based on her Depression era novel Oh My Stars. Ms. Landvik has visited our library before, to rave reviews. Don’t miss your chance to hear this talented and hilarious author!
Our library family lost a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother this weekend. There will be no preschool story time tomorrow, Wednesday, April 17, as Miss Megan and Miss Cyd will be honoring Peg Salmonson‘s life in the morning. Our hearts are with the Salmonson family.
