Make Mother's Day Plans with Eleanor Brown
After Mother's Day brunch, plan on taking mom, grandma, or your favorite aunt to the Schlessman Family Branch for this Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series presentation on Sunday, May 8 at 2:00 p.m.
Eleanor Brown's debut novel, The Weird Sisters is the story of the Andreas family, whose motto might as well be, "There's no problem a library card can't solve." When Rosalind, Bianca, and Cordelia, named by their Shakespeare professor father after three of the Bard's famous heroines, return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, they love each other. They just don't happen to like each other very much. But the sisters soon discover that everything they've been running from-one another, their small hometown, and themselves-might offer more than they ever expected.
Get on the hold list for The Weird Sisters now (you'll have to wait a bit, it's hot!) or buy a signed copy at Ms. Brown's appearance at Schlessman. What better way to celebrate the mothers in your life? Get this event onto your calendar today!
The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
