Call to artists: Library seeks proposals

Fond du Lac Public Library is seeking artists’ proposals for the creation/fabrication of a unique piece to be installed in the Main Library downtown. The library wants to commission a piece that would recognize persons who donate money to the library.

The proposals must creatively solve the following requirements:

Open Door Artists show: 'Green'

Open Door Artists will present Green, their fifth annual theme show, through April in the Fond du Lac Public Library Langdon Divers Gallery.

BookCellar Sideshow Sale April 15 & 20

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

When I read Ready Player One it reminded me of a cross between the last Harry Potter book and Hunger Games with the same premise of a lone teen battling evil. The book is set in the United States in the year 2044 when things have gone bad due to climate change and poverty. Wade Watts is an impoverished 18-year-old orphan living in a vertical trailer park called the “stacks”. He has rigged up a junked van as his sanctuary where he can log into his virtual school and spend all of his free time in the virtual world of OASIS.

Lisa Scottoline Writes Humor?

I am a huge Lisa Scottoline fan. Her suspense novels are fabulous and keep me guessing to the very last page. Who knew she could also write humor? Scottoline and her daughter, Francesca Serritella, teamed up to put together one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. Titled Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim, the book caught my eye on the new nonfiction shelves the other day and I read it last night from cover to cover. It is hilarious!
