We'll have a different book to talk about for every meeting, but if you aren't interested in some of the selections, you're free to pick something else and talk about that instead. Plus, we'll have snacks!

 

10 library copies of the "assigned" book will be provided to participants each month. No registration required!

 

For ages 13 to 17. In order to create a learning environment appropriate for teens, age limits will be enforced.

Children’s Pro
Saturday, Jun. 1, 11:00 am
The Georgetown Library and Georgetown Friends of the Library are very excited to welcome artist and author Timothy Musso on Saturday June 1st for two special events. Tim was born and raised on the Divide and now calls Riverside, CA his home. He is excited to share his latest creative project with the community.
Timothy Musso is an artist and naturalist who exhibits his work internationally. The themes of his artwork are inspired by remote cross-country backpacking trips around the world. It was on one of these trips in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that he first encountered the Arctic tern. His fascination with nature, innate curiosity, and preferred medium of relief printing coalesced in the creation of his first picture book, ‘Chasing the Sun’. The book takes the reader along with a family of Arctic terns as they migrate around the world.
Join us at 11:00 am on Saturday, June 1st for a Children’s program that will include a book reading, short art demonstration, and coloring book session.

GT - Thursdays at Tw
Thursday, Jun. 6, 2:00 pm
Join us at our poetry group, Thursdays at Two. The group meets every 1st & 3rd Thursday at 2:00 here at the library. Patterned after the popular Placerville group, Tuesdays at Two, the Georgetown Library version will be led by Taylor Graham, EDC Poet Laureate from 2016 - 2018. If you love poetry, write poetry, or dream about writing poetry, this group is for you! Assigned subjects will be offered to write poems about and then the poems are brought back to the group. This is not really a critique process but reading poems aloud to the group is a good way to hear what's working and what isn't. Participants also read from a list of established poets or bring poetry to share. There is also a 'word can'. Everyone pulls a word or phrase from the can and then uses them to write a poem in 10-15 minutes. This produces some strange and wild stuff and a lot of laughter!!!!
