May 2023 Newsletter
Doctor Who: "You want weapons? We're in a library. Books are the best weapon in the world. This room's the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself!" Greetings, all! And here comes May with sunny, warm temps, blooming trees and flowers, and a host of great things happening at A Novel Experience! If you need a respite from the pollen join us at one of our inspiring, fun, social, book and discussion clubs! From the Spirituality Book Club to the Drop-In, Guilt-Free Book Club to Living Room Conversations we convene monthly for great conversation about books and current happenings--you might encounter titles and ideas that inspire, challenge, and, maybe, invoke memories and happiness. This month we welcome a host of self-published authors on Saturday, May 27th who will be here showing--and discussing their newest works. It's a great opportunity to talk with folks who have made their dreams of seeing their work in print a reality. May is also when we celebrate Memorial Day on the 29th and Moms on the 14th--it's a time to honor some pretty signifcant people in our lives. And, our own Brenda Fayard will present her paintings at the store all this month. Stop by and enjoy! Thanks to Pike County School's Kim Johnson who organized last month's downtown Poetry Project this past month--it was inspirational! We have a lovely poetry collection for you to explore. Try reading poems aloud this month for a lovely respite from a stressful day. Stop by, discover a book and enjoy it on your front porch at sundown! The Novel Experience Team
