Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

HILL COUNTRY AUTHORS SERIES

The Friends of the Georgetown Public Library will host their 36th author event on Tuesday May 15, 2018 at 2 PM, in the Community Rooms of the library located at 402 W. 8th St.

The featured speaker will be local author, MJ Hegar, who published ‘Shoot Like a Girl’ in 2017.

In Shoot like A Girl, MJ takes the reader on a dramatic journey through her military career: an inspiring, humorous, and thrilling true story of a brave, high-spirited, and unforgettable woman who has spent much of her life ready to sacrifice everything for her country, her fellow man, and her sense of justice.

Tickets are $15 in advance. They’re available at the Second-Hand Prose bookstore on the second floor of the library, and online at www.folgeorgetown.org/calendar. Tickets are available at the door for $18. A dessert and beverage from the Red Poppy Coffee Company is included.

The event begins at 2 PM; doors open at 130 PM. Proceeds are used to fund unbudgeted items and other ongoing library projects.

Mystery Night popularity no mystery

Those of us associated with Round Rock Public Library are so appreciative of Claudia for posting a link and information about this year's Mystery Night play on this blog. And what could be better than a testimonial?

I forwarded Claudia's post (about having enjoyed the performance she attended) to Chip Hadley, a veteran of many, many Mystery Night productions; this is the 21st iteration of the well-received annual Friends of the Library fundraiser. Chip, who happens to be the author of this year's play--"Old Habits"--encapsulated MN's unique appeal very nicely: "Mystery Night is all about community. It is a local production with an original script acted by people from all walks of life in support of a community resource. It doesn't get much more neighborly than that."
