Join the public from 7:00-9:00pm at Library Main Gallery for the opening reception of "What a Mess: Calder Kamin" which showcases artist's use of local trash made into sculptures & more, for advocacy against waste, etc.
This is cross-posted with Ageless & Awesome Austin Women, since of interest to both groups, so sign up through either if joint member! I'll keep track, LOL! Prohibition Creamery: boozy & alcohol-free ice cream, milkshakes, wine, beer! Join us for this Summer Reading Salon, a quarterly celebration of literature offered by the Texas Book Festival. This event is free & open to the public. Tonight will feature authors Maya Perez & Amy Gentry, along with Texas Book Festival Literary Director Julie Wernersbach. They will share their favorite books for summer reading. Please check in with me & meet other members!
Come join our group as we join Shoal Creek Conservancy for a 45 minute walk together along Shoal Creek Trail. They'll be discussing the inaugural nature book, "The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman. Its not necessary to have read the book, but this might interest you to do so. Its free but registration online is requested, or can add you as my guest. MY MEMBERS PLEASE READ: A walking Book Club creates an opportunity to casually exercise & socialize, & build community around a love of books. This is one of my future plans for my developing Retirees Reading Club, but more likely a week day event. Come see if interests you & help me with discussion & suggestions over lunch TBD after the walk.
