Activities planned for Pine Island Public Library

April 24, 2013
Pine Island Eagle

Next month's roster of activities at Pine Island Public Library offers topics for all ages. The following activities are free to the public:

ADULT

Palm Art with Shawn Holiday

1:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4

This is a workshop on weaving palm fronds into baskets, bracelets, napkin rings and other items. Participants will learn how to render a variety of materials like natural twine, table decorations and even paper that can be written on. Local writer/teacher Shawn Holiday will provide all the materials needed, but participants are welcome to bring natural items from their yards. Sponsored by the Friends of the Pine Island Public Library. Registration is required.

Book Discussion: Before the Poison

by Peter Robinson

1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 23

Throughout years of success in Hollywood composing music for Oscar-winning films, Chris Lowndes always imagined he would come full circle, home to Yorkshire with his beloved wife Laura. Now he's back in the Yorkshire Dales, but Laura is dead and Chris needs to make a new life for himself. The isolated house he buys sight unseen should give him the space to come to terms with his grief and the quiet to allow him to work. However, Kilnsgate House turns out to be more than he expected. A man died there 60 years ago and his wife was convicted of the murder. Something is pulling Chris deeper and deeper into the story of Grace Elizabeth Fox, who was hanged by the neck until she was dead. Was Grace Fox guilty of murder is the question you will ask yourself until the end of the book.
