This year we are thrilled to have such a great line up of performers, speakers and events. Canadianauthor, William Thomas, who is also a scriptwriter and nationally syndicated humour columnist, will be here Saturday, October 13 at 7:00.  He is the author of ten books of humour, including Life in the Litterbox and The Legend of Zippy Chippy. Although we have most of his books in our collection, there will be books for sale at this event. The following Friday night, October 19, Kristyn Harris,a Texas-bred musical powerhouse, will treat us to her shimmering vocals, solid swing rhythm guitar style and award-winning yodelling. You do not want to miss her captivating stage presence. At 23, she is the youngest person to be awarded the Western Music Association Entertainer of the Year and the only female to receive it twice. Kristyn was recently a contestant on American Idol. We have Kevin Van Tighem returning to the library, Friday, October 26. This former superintendent at Banff National Park, is the award-winning author of several books including Bears Without Fear, The Homeward WolfHeart Waters: Sources of the Bow River and Our Place: Changing the Nature of Alberta. Kevin’s talk begins at 7 pm. For something a little different, we have a couple of exciting events. Take a trip down memory lane at the Vintage Fashion Show on October 12, 7 pm. Join the founder of Banjolena’s Closet and enjoy the fashions, music and snacks from the 40s, 50s and 60s.

Due to the anticipated popularity of these events, admission will be by ticket only. You can pick up your FREE ticket for the above events at the library starting September 15.
We finish our series with Authors Among Us on Saturday, October 27. Come and experience an afternoon symposium of authors who live right among us in Diamond Valley. You can meet with them one on one, listen to readings from their works and purchase their books. The event will run from 1-4 pm.
