literary elementsOur Adult Summer Reading Club celebrated this year’s reading with a Wrap-up Party last night.  Author Sara Beth Durst was there and gave an entertaining and enlightening talk about her writing life and process.  Club members attending enjoyed refreshments as well.  Many members went home with prizes given away in the raffle.  Raffle tickets were earned for each book read and for attendance at  Summer Reading program events.
