Latham Library will be starting up a Seed Library to be made available to Thetford Libraries patrons in the spring of 2021! With your library card, you will be able to “check-out” seeds grown locally…you are welcome to simply use them in your garden, or you may choose to complete the circle by harvesting the seeds from your plants and giving them back to the Seed Library. In preparation for our new venture we are offering a Seed Saving Workshop for kids and families. Join local growing guru Cat Buxton over Zoom as she explains the basics of seed saving. A packet of supplies will be sent home beforehand to make this a hands-on class! Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All ages welcome, though young children will need an adult helper.
Join Thetford author Dean Whitlock over Zoom as he reads from the Carver’s World series, to be released as a boxed set next month. Dean will also give a sneak preview of his forthcoming novel, The Bell Cannon:
“The Bell Cannon is a gaslight thriller set on the Isle of Lewis, an ocean liner steaming from New York to Glasgow in 1878. Ewan Gilmore is a young crewman with a blot in his past that has marked him as bad luck, a pariah among the crew. Demoted to steward, then almost left on the pier, he’s been given one last chance to prove himself: by masquerading as a passenger to be the secret bodyguard for one Professor Jakub Skovajsa and his gifted daughter, Tereza.The Skovajsas, by federal order, are leaving the U.S. under their own cloud of suspicion and fear. No one knows exactly what happened during the professor’s last experiment, only that somehow it killed his wife, along with a squad of soldiers, a general, two congressmen, and the Secretary of War. Rumor has it he was working on a secret weapon that would end all wars, and no one knows where he hid the prototype. No other ship will take the Skovajsas, but the Lewis can’t afford not to. As passions on board begin to rise, she steams east into a maelstrom of shysters, spies, death threats, traitorous allies, and a raging hurricane, with the mystery of the Bell Cannon at its eye.”
