You may have noticed that my big Osher Saturday Morning Book Talk that was scheduled for February 1st got cancelled due to an ice storm here in Columbia, Missouri. The monthly ‘Osher Saturday Morning Book Talks’ are hosted by Kit and Cathy Salter and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Missouri. The Salters tried to reschedule the event for later in February in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, the new venue for the book talks, but the building was not available. Instead, they scheduled it at the new Southern Boone County Public Library.
We will be meeting in the Library’s Community Room on Saturday, February 15th. Doors will open at 9 AM, refreshments by Julie of the famed Flour Girls Bake Shop will be available at 9:30 AM. The book talk will begin at 10 AM, followed by a book sale and book signing.
The address for this special venue is:
Southern Boone County Public Library
109 N. Main Street
Kit Salter sent me this information:
There is parking right at the Library. To get to the Ashland branch library, drive south from Columbia on Hwy. 63 and get off at the Ashland ramp. At the top of the ramp, turn RIGHT and go about a half-mile (two four-way Stops) to the center of town (Broadway and Main St.). Turn right on Main, and then immediately turn left into the Library Parking Lot. Doors open a little after 9 am.
Books and pastries will be sold only for cash or check, so don’t come with only a credit card. Cash or check. The gathering, and the coffee, is free
Please spread this good news around to others who were frustrated also by the icy roads that made us cancel the originally scheduled Feb. 1 talk. We will be at our Osher Parks and Rec Venue on March 1 for the Osher Book Talk by Wayne Anderson. You can get your new book marks with a map to the Osher Parks and Rec Venue at the Library talk next week on February 15!
We hope to see a lot of you at the Southern Boone Library a week from today.
