Waldo at Best Furniture, Cobblestone Cafe and Fort Thomas Coffee


Local author and artist, Michele Pam Wright, will be doing a free presentation, reading, and nature craft activity at Blue Marble Books book store on Monday, July 27 from 1-2 p.m.

Bill Pryor, a professional, award-winning magician will be performing as well.

Wright will engage and entertain children through props, nature sounds, and a lively discussion as they learn unusual facts about nature. Afterwards, each child can create their own nature friend out of natural materials such as pine cones, nuts, etc.

Children, ages 6-10, will enjoy this free, fun activity inside Blue Marble Books’ beautiful “Secret Garden” found behind the book store (held indoors in case of rain).

Books by Wright will be 10% off the day of the presentation and signed by the author. (only $7.15)
A member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators), Wright is a published author as well as a professional graphic designer, artist, and nature photographer.

- The Blue Marble also has copies of Harper Lee's new book, Go Set a Watchman. About Lee's newest release:

Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch—"Scout"—returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise's homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past—a journey that can only be guided by one's own conscience.

Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision—a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic.
