Jazz, Books, and Herbal Medicine!

Whether you want to learn about a famous jazz musician or make your own t-shirt, there is plenty going on this week at FCL My Branch!

Have you always been a music fan and are wanting to learn more about a legendary jazz musician? Join us at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17 for a Duke Ellington Lecture. Although many people are aware of Duke Ellington's hits from the 1930s and 40s, he also created some undiscovered gems during the 50s and 70s. Come learn about the 47 year career of this music legend!

If you'd rather talk books, start the New Year with a discussion of the sometimes funny, sometimes serious, ever thoughtful and entertaining book, The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson. The Books On Broadway group meets at the Ross-Broadway Branch Library on Tuesday, January 17 at 6:30 p.m.

Whether you are interested in starting to learn about herbal medicine, or simply want to expand your knowledge, join us at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch on Wednesday, January 18 at 6:00 p.m for Intro to Herbal Medicine for Health & Wellness. We will discuss why & how to use herbs as daily tonics or for acute situations, quality of herbs, different preparations, and the MUST-haves for every home.

Perhaps you have always wanted to show off your crafty side - if so, join us at the Make & Take Studio: T-Shirt Embellishing at the Ross-University Hills Branch on Saturday, January 21 at 2:00 p.m. Please register: 720-865-0955 or fclmybranch@denverlibrary.org.
