Writing, Cooking Inspiration Can Be Found at Siouxland Libraries

It is a good thing that I love writing, because it has become a huge part of my job. But even before that occurred, I have written essays, movie and television scripts, and a couple of unfinished books exist somewhere in my files at home.

But like most writers, I’m always looking for inspiration. And other writers can be a great place to find it. Hearing about what motivates other scribes can be balm for your creative soul. If that is true for you, you’ll want to take in a free event at the Downtown Library, (200 North Dakota Avenue) on Thursday, October 12, from 6:30 to 7:30 PM.

University of Sioux Falls English professor Mary Honerman, (who uses the pen name Mary Angela) will be chatting about what inspired her Professor Prather mysteries (which are set on a university campus in the midwest).

Her books An Act of Murder and Passport to Murder will be available for purchase at the presentation. This is a great opportunity to meet a successful local author and pick her brain. For more info call the Downtown Library at 367-8700.

Now if you also love cooking, exchanging recipes and reading cookbooks, like I do, there is another fun event at the Caille Library branch on Saturday, October 14, from 2 to 3 PM. You can bring old cookbooks and exchange them for different ones, chat about your favorite recipes with other avid cooks, all while enjoying tasty refreshments you didn’t have to create! Call 367-8144 for more details.

Both events are absolutely free and you don’t even need to register, just show up and enjoy!
