Monday, Sep. 18, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
September is prime time to begin collecting seeds from your garden and landscape! Let’s get started by learning how to properly collect, store, and save seeds. Not only will you find out how to get a “jump on the season,” but you’ll also become familiar with the NEW Williamson County Public Library’s Seed Exchange and how it works ... maybe you’ll become a seed saver and donate a few to the program yourself!

Literary Ladies Book
Main Library
Monday, Sep. 18, 6:00 p.m.
Our September book is West with the Night by Beryl Markham.  This is her autobiography—she had an interesting life.  She was an aviator, racehorse trainer, renowned beauty, all while she lived in Kenya of the 1920s and '30s.  She was also a good friend of author Isak Dinesen, aka Karen Blixen.

We'll be discussing One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson in October. The summer of 1927 began with Charles Lindbergh, who became the first man to cross the Atlantic by planet.  Also, Babe Ruth was beginning his home run record.   Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days and the South was drenched by flooding of the Mississippi basin. The gangster Al Capone had his reign of terror and municipal corruption. The first true “talking picture,” Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer premiered and more, related only as Bill Bryson can.

The Literary Ladies Book Club meets the third Monday of each month in the Board Room of the main branch at the Franklin location.  The Board Room is on the second floor of the library.  The book group reads all genres and non-fiction too!  We welcome new members.
