Library Programs

Last night I took in a program at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library about the James Bonds films. It was hosted by Raymond Benson, who has written 9 James Bond books, and Dann Gire, the film critic from the Daily Herald newspaper.

Their commentary was great, filling us in on tidbits we would otherwise not have known. The clips from the films were also great. A refreshing change of pace instead of staying home and watching TV.

In August, a set up a display at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library to showcase Chicago-North Romance Writers of America, of which I'm a past president and remain a member.

I also reserved case for December to display my individual information. This morning I finished setting it up. As I was leaving, one of the patrons was already giving it a once-over, which made me feel good.
