Father-daughter authors at Literary Bookpost
Literary Bookpost will host the first Saturday Salon at its new location at 110 S. Main St. on Saturday, September 12, 1-4 p.m. Visiting co-authors Richard Nance and Rhonda Roth will be signing copies of their new book, “Journey of the Chosen,” Book 1 of the Hidden World Chronicles.
“Journey of the Chosen” opens up a whole new genre of fiction, a cross between mainstream fiction, science fiction and spiritual fiction. The book takes the reader on a breathtaking ride through all the secret and covert centers of our world, bringing in mythology, religion, politics, espionage, and mystery. Ultimately, the reader finds him or herself in the midst of a classic battle between good and evil.
Lead author Richard Nance has had an eclectic assortment of careers since leaving North Carolina State University School of Electrical Engineering, including careers as a teacher, an electrician, and a stint in the Navy. All of his careers have, in some way, laid the foundation for this, his first book. Co-author Rhonda Rich is his daughter.
Literary Bookpost is located at 110 S. Main St., downtown Salisbury. For additional information about this event, or future events, call 704-630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost. com.
September is library card month
By Suzanne White
Rowan Public Library
Gov. Bev Perdue designated September as Library Card Sign-up Month in North Carolina, encouraging children, families and North Carolina residents to explore their public library and its many resources and to sign up for the “smartest card.”
“A public library card gives you access to a whole world of information and imagination,” said Perdue. “During these tough economic times, our state’s public libraries are critical because they help residents learn to read, use computers and develop other skills they need to succeed.”
Rowan Public Library wants to make sure that families in Rowan County have the smartest card of all ó a library card. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
Activities this month include weekly story times for all ages, teen programs, movie nights, computer classes and a special Family Storytelling Concert with national storyteller Jim Weiss.
Kids and adults can come to the library to get homework help and check out books, DVDs and CDs, play games, read newspapers and magazines, use the Internet and attend story times, movie nights, computer classes and reading programs.
There’s a lot happening at Rowan Public Library, and the best part for both kids and parents is that it’s all free with a library card.
Why buy when you can borrow? Getting a library card is easy. Just bring photo identification showing current address or photo identification along with a bill or other proof of current address.
