When you come to visit us, please make sure to head back to our little Book Nook in the alcove.  We have a big comfy couch and feature books by local authors.  Come, sit a spell, pick up a good read and find your new favorite author!Walton Writers meets the first Thursday of each month, features guest speakers … and is free!  Their next meeting is April 5 at 6:30.  Everyone has a book inside them but most need a little help to coax it out!  Join them as author, teacher and editor Mary Marvella shares “Editing the Garden of your Manuscript: What Editors Wished You Knew”.

Its’s a good motivation to clean out your closets!
