Summer Programs are Ending! 

No Mistakes Writing Workshop!

TWO Pre-order Speical Offers! 

Though summer is in full, sunny swing, the end of July brings the end of most of our summer programs.

The Summer Reading Challenges are heading to a page-turning conclusion. The second of the two kids' sessions will end on Saturday, July 28th, with a fun celebration of your acheivemnts in reading for fifteen minutes every day this month! The party starts at 10am, and will feature snacks, bookish games, and a free book for everyone who brings in their completed, colored tracking sheet! The adult and teen Summer Reading program--where we challenged you to read seven books in two months--will end on the same day. That party will be Saturday the 28th at 1pm, and each book you finished and wrote on your tracking bookmark will count as a raffle entry to the grand prize drawing at 1:30! 

Both the scavenger hunts--Where's Waldo Local! and the Bard in the Bar!--will be ending on July 31st! We're celebrating your super searching skills with parties on August 3rd for the kids and Waldo (at 10:30am--the raffles for all the various prizes donated by the Waldo publisher, Candlewick, and the participating businesses will begin at 11am) and on August 4th for the adults and the Bard (12pm on the deck of the Forge Publick House, with the raffles beginning at 12:30)! Don't miss out on your chance to win many fantastic prizes!

We're hosting an authorless event for a new writing/drawing/inspiration book NO MISTAKES, written by Keiko Agena (you know her from Gilmore Girls!)! We're inviting artists of all kinds to a workshop crafted to test their boundaries, help them learn about their inner artist, and produce work they feel proud of. Join us on Tuesday, August 14th at 6:00pm for an hour and a half of writing time, with prompts from the upcoming book! The event is open to anyone, but registration is required, so email us today to reserve your spot!
