Something for Everyone in January at the Redwood City Public Library
Redwood City, CA - January 4, 2006 - The Redwood City Public Library announces two great “not to be missed” events for adults, both happening this month.
First, it’s Meet the Authors - Wednesday, January 11, 7:30 pm at the Downtown Library features Jane Ganahl, Wendy Merrill and Jean Gonick reading selections from “Single Woman of a Certain Age: 29 Women Writers on the Unmarried Midlife-Romantic Escapades, Heavy Petting, Empty Nests, Shifting Shapes and Serene Independence.” Edited by San Francisco Chronicle Relationship Columnist Jane Ganahl, “Single Woman” features an outstanding collection of writers and personalities.
Swinging from desperation to optimism and from bad moods to good grace, these 29 essays range from the mild to the wild, and the glamorous to the mundane, each expressing the gifts and travails of “going solo.”
Then, for those who are wondering how to get roses to rivals those of their neighbor, Barry Johnson, President of the Peninsula Rose Society offers the insider’s secrets to getting lovely spring blooms in a Rose Pruning Demonstration on Thursday, January 12 at the Downtown Library, starting at 7:30 pm.
Those are just two of the events happening in January at the Redwood City Public Library, which offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of our community.
