Floyd fields questions at Luncheon With Books

June 6, 2013

John Floyd paid his fourth visit to the Bryan Public Library at noon Thursday. Most authors read a few pages from their newest novel or short story collection and continue with teasers about their next project. Floyd’s time during Luncheon With Books wasn’t spent talking about “Deception” or his other books, he connected with his audience in a different way. He opened up the floor for questions.

Inky clowns around the library

June 5, 2013

Ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages squeezed into the Esther Pippen Room of the Bryan Public Library to spend the afternoon with Inky the Clown. Inky kept everyone oooing and ahhing (mainly because he had everyone say it on cue) during the opening act of the Summer Reading Program; Dig into Reading! Inky is a favorite of the library with magic, jokes, juggling, balloon animals and good clean fun for everyone.

Where do we go from here?

May 17, 2013

So many times we have gone to the polls on election day, and we have checked the name of a man or woman we want to represent us.
