I just finished a series of author events for the Spokane County Library District.
“Bonds of Love and Remembrance” paired stories from War Bonds: Love Stories From the Greatest Generation with music of the era from Hot Club of Spokane.
We had such a great time at each of the four libraries we visited.
At every event a reader will tell me about their parents or grandparents, or about a family member who served in WWll. The stories are heartwarming and it’s a wonderful thing to trigger happy memories.
My two favorite moments from these events also came from attendees.
A lady at Moran Prairie came up to have her book signed and ask how Milo and Thor are doing. Those aren’t my kids– those are my cats! She said she enjoys reading about their adventures in my column in the Spokesman Review.
And a toddler tapped my knee at Spokane Valley Library, and said, “Thank you for WEEDING (reading)!”
Is it any wonder why I love libraries so much?
