“Bless me, Ultima” discussion rescheduled


First, the bad news:  The book discussion group for “Bless me, Ultima” was canceled last Wednesday, June 12, when the library and all Evanston city offices closed at 3 p.m. due to anticipated severe weather.

Now, the good news:  We’ve rescheduled the book group for this upcoming Wednesday, June 19th, at 7 pm.  We’ll meet on the 3rd Floor of the Main Library in the new meeting room by the periodicals desk.

Hope you can make it for the discussion of “Bless me, Ultima“!
