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.

It's official: The Taylor Stevens group was fantastic!

Responding to my grateful email message--for which the subject line was "Thanks! You were wonderful!"--Taylor replied, "I appreciate the kudos so much and I'm so glad that everyone had a good time!...  I enjoyed myself so much. You all were such a wonderful crowd, with fantastic questions. It was a blast."

Thanks to everyone who attended Taylor Stevens' September 21 author visit--and those of you who wished you could have.  (Claudia and Frank, we missed you.)  The occasion was characterized by a nice synergy, owing to Taylor's engaging speaking style and the variety of great questions and comments offered by all of you.  

Please tell your friends about Taylor's Vanessa Michael Munroe series.  Your participation in this event is truly appreciated.

Thanks for the post Linda, I tried to make notes on her comments and will post some of them eventually.

I also very much enjoyed the Taylor Stevens talk, and liked being able to get copies of four different books signed. If you are reading them in order, she recommends reading the novella before the fourth book (The Vessel http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-vessel-taylor-stevens/1119434742?ean=9780553419900). Stevens will be at BoucherCon in Raleigh NC (Oct 8-11; still time to get there); this is the world mystery convention. Looking forward to the movie by James Cameron.
