Under a month to the first Out Loud! event of 2012
Coming up on May 11, Linn Area Reads and Out Loud! The Metro Library Network Author Series will present Nicolette Hahn Niman at the Hotel at Kirkwood Center. We certainly hope folks reading this blog will join us for that event.
Hahn Niman's event is the fourth of eight Out Loud! events this year. We kick off in April with nonfiction and fiction writer Robin Hemley (April 21) and fiction writer Kevin Brockmeier (April 21), and we have Marc Brown, creator of "Arthur," on May 3.
After Ms. Hahn Niman, we have four more great events, including A. David Lewis (comics), Wendy Delsol (teen paranormal romance), James Rollins (thiller), and Sam Kean (science).
The full schedule is available here: www.metrolibrarynetwork.org/outloud.
We hope you'll join us...and if you do, you might consider eating at The Class Act, the restaurant at the Hotel at Kirkwood Center. It's a part of the school's acclaimed hospitality program.
As it says on the restaurant's menu page, it features "the area's highest quality seasonal ingredients," which is, of course, in keeping with the themes of this year's Linn Area Reads program. And the Out Loud! Author Series team can confirm that the food is excellent at The Class Act.
