As part of the Evergreen Library's monthly book discussion group, you're invited to join local author Dale Lovin as he discusses his book, The Mirror in the River: A Novel of Suspense.

When a wealthy woman mysteriously disappears near Aspen, Colo., former FBI Agent Brad Walker finds that his love of fly fishing in remote  mountain areas has planted him directly in the crosshairs of corrupt politicians and a kingpin in the world of human trafficking.

Conifer's first ever LEGO club was held today with astonishing success. I'd like to thank everyone who participated, the parents that gave their time to bring and work with the kids, and the donations of LEGOs, Megablocks, and Duplos to encourage their creativity and imagination. Stop by the library and see these creations in the Conifer Library display case.

Painting a Story with Words

by: 
Bethany

Can writing really be compared to painting? You'd be surprised.

Novelist Elizabeth Wrenn, author of Around the Next Corner, will illustrate how writers make a myriad of choices on every page, and why. From the detail work of a stippling brush (word choice), to the broader strokes of large brushes (plot, character, dialogue, setting), to the frame surrounding it all (beginning, middle, end), writers must use all the tools in their kit.

This hands-on workshop, presented by 40 West Arts and the Lakewood Library, will share practical tips and techniques for more effective writing.

1 p.m. Sunday, June 9
