Everybody Reads Idah
All Locations
Saturday, Sep. 22
For Everybody Reads 2018, join us in the reading of "Idaho" a stunning debut novel about love and forgiveness, about the violence of memory and the equal violence of its loss—from O. Henry Prize–winning author Emily Ruskovich.
Ann and Wade have carved out a life for themselves from a rugged landscape in northern "Idaho,"where they are bound together by more than love. With her husband’s memory fading, Ann attempts to piece together the truth of what happened to Wade’s first wife, Jenny, and to their daughters. In a story written in exquisite prose and told from multiple perspectives—including Ann, Wade, and Jenny, now in prison—we gradually learn of the mysterious and shocking act that fractured Wade and Jenny's lives, of the love and compassion that brought Ann and Wade together, and of the memories that reverberate through the lives of every character in "Idaho."

Author, Emily Ruskovich will be speaking at the Colfax Library on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 12 p.m. Order lunch, bring your own, or just come to listen. Lunch is catered by Main Street Cafe & Kitchen, $13 per plate. Vegetarian options available. Please call 397-4366 to reserve your lunch by Thursday, Nov. 1.

Oil Painting exhibit
Colfax Branch Library
Saturday, Sep. 22

From Monet to Van Gogh, and Pissarro to Picasso, area residents are invited to get a flavor of master artists through the stunning replica oil paintings of Robin Stanard now showing at The Center at Colfax Library. The exhibit includes 28 sizeable replicas of artwork being shown in museums throughout the world.

Artist Robin Standard grew up in Colfax, eventually raising two daughters here and working in his family’s carpentry business. While he found satisfaction in the creativity of designing and remodeling homes he is very excited to again be focusing upon his art.

Stanard begun drawing as a child and is self-taught, spending years practicing with pencils and paints. About three years ago, his daughters gave him some watercolors and color pencils for Father’s day and the spark returned. Stanard began an intense journey into the work of 20th Century artists and was inspired to replicate their works. Stanard says, “Their paintings have the ability to generate great emotion in a different way for every person. I believe this is the true magic of art.”

Stanard’s “Replica Oil Paintings from Museums Around the World " shows at The Center at Colfax Library, from September 4-October 21th. Exhibit hours are Mondays-Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays-Fridays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays-Sundays 1-5 p.m.  The Center at Colfax Library is located at 102 S.
