THURSDAYS  ~ 6:30 PM

FEBRUARY 18     ~~     MARCH 3     ~~     MARCH 17

We are excited to share a new program with our community: Magic Valley Reads! It’s a reading and discussion series which will highlight Idaho authors, history, and culture. We hope to make this a yearly event, and since so many of you have let us know you enjoy local topics, we hope you’ll join us!

We’ve chosen three books to inaugurate our season:

The series will kick off on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18 with our guest, CSI’s Dr. Jim Gentry. He’ll be here at 6:30 PM to talk about his recently-published book, Meeting Needs and Developing Opportunities: A History of the College of Southern Idaho. A discussion of the book will follow his presentation.

On THURSDAY, MARCH 3, we’ll discuss Moscow native Carol Ryrie Brink’s classic novel, Buffalo Coat. Copies of this book have been generously loaned to the Library by the Idaho Commission for Libraries in celebration of Idaho Day on March 4.

The series will come to a close on THURSDAY, MARCH 17 with a discussion of Gifts of Heritage, edited by Donna Scott and ZoeAnn Shaub. The book offers a number of Twin Falls memories, and to end the evening, participants may share their own Magic Valley stories for inclusion in a volume that will be archived in the Library’s celebrated Idaho Room.

Check out the 3-book set, and get more information at the Reference Desk (or call 733-2964 ext. 200).
