Adult Coloring Group
Wednesday, Nov. 28, 10:30-11:30am
Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group!
Bruce Robert Coffin
Wednesday, Nov. 28, 6:30-7:30PM
Bruce Coffin is back to read and discuss his highly anticipated third novel, Beyond the Truth. This latest addition to the John Byron series has been described as “a superbly realistic, tense, and exciting novel” and “first-rate; suspenseful and highly entertaining.”

Discouraged by an unfulfilling and frustrating college creative writing class, Coffin didn’t start writing until much later in his life. But this long incubation period gave way to tight investigative thrillers that capitalized on his law enforcement background. He
 is a former detective sergeant with more than 27 years of law enforcement under his belt. By the time he retired from the Portland Police department, he supervised all homicide and violent crime investigations for the city of Portland. 


This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available to purchase from the author. For questions or directions, visit freeportlibrary.com or call 865-3307.
