NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month logo

Are you a creative writer (or writer wannabe) celebrating National Novel Writing Month? It's an initiative that challenges writers to reach a goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by November's end. The library has tools to help!

Pressbooks is free online software to create and design print-ready and ebook files. Use it for your book, newsletter, poetry and more.

Once you have your grand opus finished, you can submit it to the Wisconsin Author Project in April 2019. This contest helps writers expose their work to a broader audience - and win a little money and acclaim!

Book discussion: White Teeth

Our next book discussion title will be White Teeth by Zadie Smith. The library will host discussions on this title on Monday, December 17 - join us at NOON or 7 pm.

At the center of this novel are two unlikely friends. Veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England's irrevocable transformation. Set against London's racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles
