Celebrate literature in April at Garden Home Library!

GardenHome Community Library is hosting two literary events this month.
First, celebrate National Poetry Month on Tuesday, April 19 from 7-8 p.m.  Portland Poet Susan Patterson (A.K.A. Earlene Grey) will read from a mix of her works, including some from “Musings with a Cuppa.”  Patterson’s writing includes: poetry, memoir and tea poetry.  And of course, there will be a “cuppa” to go along with the reading. 

Second, thou art invited to celebrate the birth of William Shakespeare.  The “Birthday Bash for the Bard” is an all-ages event on Saturday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m.  Festivities include: an armor and sword demo by NW Arzimare; a Shakespearean insult game (with prizes), a Shakespeare reading by Portland Actors Ensemble, plus a reading by 2016 Agatha Award nominee Cindy Brown of her marvelous mystery, Macdeath. And, of course, birthday cake!

Both of these events will take place at the Garden Home Community Store (& event space). This space is across the street from the library in the Lamb's shopping area. The Community Store is on the Oleson side of the building, 2 doors down from the Baskin-Robbins.
