The BPL Book Club will meet at 6:00 p.m. in the Frances Kegley Conference Room on March 15.  We'll finish reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, and we'll pick up our next reading adventure:  The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.  As always, we'll have Blackbird Bakery treats!

We also have a set schedule for the new books we'll be reading in BPL Book Club, including The Storied Life of A.J.

Classic Movie Corner
On the last Thursday of each month, we're celebrating film with a special look back at the classic movies we love.  This month, we're watching Rio Bravo (1959).  We'll kick things off at 5:30 p.m. in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room on March 29.  Popcorn and water will be provided for all movie attendees!

Like reading?  Then you're going to love Nevermore.  On Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m., Nevermore meets to discuss all manner of books and consume donuts (from Blackbird Bakery, of course) and coffee.  Read at your own pace and share with us what you enjoyed best, and we'll even write a review about it.  (To see more of our Nevermore reviews, check out our lovely little Bookblog.)
