Many composers have written songs that came to them in dreams. Ann Aswegan, author and dream consultant, will offer insight on dreams with a musical theme. Musician Andy Nath will provide a live musical tour of dreamy songs, featuring old standards, modern classics and some of his own original work. But wait there's more! We will be using Ann's insights and information, and Andy's inspiration to render our own dreamscapes using paper, collage, sound-rich imagery and a variety of Fearless Crafter's materials and techniques. Try something new and create your own visual sound landscape in this very unique and multisensory original program. For adults and older teens. The program and supplies are free but space is limited so registration is a must!Sponsored by Friends of the Monona Public Library.
Join our book club for adults who love young adult and teen lit and/or want to keep up with what their kids are reading. Enjoy and discuss some of the most exciting edgy current writing from dystopian novels to historical fiction. The Teen Lit Book group meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in the Quiet Reading Room. We meet 11 months of the year (skipping December).
So come into the library and check-out a copy of one of our upcoming books, enjoy it, and join us for a unforgettable book discussion. Copies are available at the Monona Public Library circulation desk on a first come, first served basis.
Check back often for the latest titles from the Teen Lit for Adults Book Club.
